Broker's Comments

'An exciting four berth yacht designed by Ian Proctor that combines scintillating sailing performance with a comfort below decks that puts her in a class of her own'. So said the builders, Rydgeway Marine of Lowestoft Suffolk, and there is little that I can add or dispute. Back in the '70s there were any number of British yards turning out sensible, affordable yachts in the twenty foot range. Sadly times move on and most of these builders have disappeared from the scene. Cash flows and a public chasing ever larger yachts saw to that and now yachts of this size usually come from Eastern Europe, at a price. However the Preludes, Pageants, Pandoras are mostly still with us thankfully, because they still offer good sailing performance and camping style accommodation. She would appeal to someone moving up from dinghies or someone downsizing from the expense and hassle of a larger yacht. This yacht is in extremely good condition for her age. She is clean, tidy and almost original - no botched owner improvements here.
A recent price reduction makes her an extremely attractive package for some summer boating fun!
