Broker's Comments

The Samphire 26 is a sea worthy long keel yacht. The interior is spacious for a yacht of this length and classic styling. This one had a nice Beta 3-Cylinder diesel engine fitted in 2004 and it has only completed 155 hours running since.
Appointments to view can be arranged in advance 6-days a week by contacting the Boatshed Essex office direct.
These boat details are subject to contract.
