Spacious bright airy day spaces, a real kitchen and three double cabins make this a comfortable family boat and the full canopy around the aft deck further increases useful space. A Penichette 1260 now offered for sale with full inventory including two folding bikes. Very light use over the last ten years and looking like it just needs a dusting down to be ready to go.
