Broker's Comments

The Golden Hind 26 is a classic small cruising yacht with a Big Boat feel. Her slightly larger sister (GH 31) holds the record for the number of Atlantic crossings made by a single class of yacht. With her shallow draught, full length ballast keel and bilge plates she is no greyhound, but will safely and comfortably convey her crew anywhere, and is ideally suited to the small drying harbours of the Bristol Channel and West Country. This one is soundly built and benefits from a huge inventory and a recent (2004) survey. See "More Photos" to view 18 internal and external photos of this vessel. More photos to follow, when the weather improves!
