Broker's Comments

The Holman 26 was designed by Kim Holman as a fast cruiser with classic lines. The are well built carvel construction and regarded as an improvement on the similar but slightly smaller Stella.
This yacht has been restored and maintained under the guidance of her owner of the last 15 yrs. We have added some of the restoration details in the sections above, but also have invoices and further information available. She is however in need of revarnishing and the owner is willing to reduce her asking price to the £7,000 now indicated (She has until now been for sale at £11K).

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
