Broker's Comments

Stepping aboard this Newbridge Pioneer I found it really difficult to believe that it is only a 26 foot boat. There seems to be ample room for a proper galley, a proper chart table, ample seating and an aft cabin. And all of this is made to feel even more spacious by the very nice light upholstery. Sitting in the saloon one is impressed by how light and airy it actually feels.
This boat also ticks so many boxes in terms of its equipment and most of the major cost items have all been replaced in the past few years.
Definitely one worth a look. A cracking little family cruiser.
