Broker's Comments

The Cardinal 26 is a well thought out Bilge Keel cruising yacht. Manufactured in small numbers in Wales the Cardinal offers safe but lively sailing with a well laid out cockpit offering a wrap around style benching with Treadmaster covering the main areas.
The hull has a great specification using the Gelshield system from International and is quoted as being up to 32mm thick around where the keel bolts are situated. All windows and deck gear are by Lewmar adding to the overall quality of the build. Good sound deadening on the easily accessed engine, the 9hp Volvo saildrive gives ample push to the Cardinal.
Layout below there is ample room for 6, in two separate cabins with a great galley layout and a light and airy heads.
Set ready to sail away this Cardinal 26 offers great value for money and is well worth looking over if you are set on a family cruiser.
