Broker's Comments

From the pen of Bill Dixon the Newbridge Pioneer is a modern cruising bilge keeler, well capable of cross channel passages whilst retaining the ability to explore the shoal draft backwaters. A well designed yacht which provides comfort - with full standing headroom, 6 berths and a comfortable, sociable saloon.

This example has excellent treadmaster covered decks and all halliards led aft make deck work safe and easy. A good sized - deep cockpit, strong 18hp Volvo diesel inboard, good levels of navigation equipment throughout. She is very clean, both inside and out, with a survey from 2001 (which can be emailed to you), I would be very suprised if there was much if anything required to get her in the water for the coming season.
