Broker's Comments

The Samphire 26 is the ideal yacht if you are looking for a traditional craft, with classic lines, but are not interested in the kind of maintenance, which a wooden boat would entail. She had osmosis treatment supervised by a surveyor in 1998 and the engine was rebuilt, also in 1998. She is a tidy yacht throughout, with excellent accommodation, and would make an ideal family cruiser. The current owner has taken delivery of his new boat and is keen to see her go to a new home.
