Wooden Ships Comments on this 26′ Cabin Boat

Built by Charmans Boatyard of Bembridge in 1965, she would no doubt have been used around the Solent as a comfortable weekend boat.

A sturdy and safe motor yacht with a large aft cockpit, sheltered wheelhouse and simple accommodation forward giving a heads, galley and double berth.  This is perfect for weekend excursions and nights away, with the new aft cockpit cover creating a large sheltered space aft when staying aboard.

She has a brand new Thorneycroft 60hp engine which has only done 40hrs running and has been professionally maintained this year with all new paint and varnish work.
