Broker's Comments

The Macwester 26’s are solidly built and very spacious; they are roomier than a Westerly Centaur their main competition at the time. Performance wise they are safe and steady rather than flighty and fast. This one has been owned for 22 years by her current owner. During his ownership the boat has been wintered ashore for 5 to 6 months every year and the engine serviced annually.

These boat details are subject to contract.
