Broker's Comments

The Stella 26 is a very popular Kim Holman design which has proved to be a very successful little racer particularly with the Medway river where her shoal draft proves to be advantageous. Stella 26's are very popular boats. This particular Stella has been owned by her current owners for 10 years and has been kept in good condition. She has been the subject of extensive refurbishment which has been carried out to a high standard, Newly replaced equipment such as her boom in 2006 and her mast most recently in 2012, top deck replacement, engine overhaul etc. makes this sailing yacht great value for money for a new time sailor.
