Broker's Comments

Going aboard this Kingfisher 26 with her junk rig its like a trip down memory lane. Back in the sixties a number of transatlantic sailors chose this type of boat and rig because of their ease of handling. The Kingfisher 26 is a robustly built vessel with a proven track record.
She was out of the water in 2019 when she was anti fouled and her topsides and coach roof were painted. She also had a top end engine overhaul.
The boast has been extensively modified from original interior design for improved long term solo voyaging. Included in this sale will be a home-made wind-vane, folding plastic dinghy amongst various spares detailed in extra photographs.
If you are the type of sailor who wishes to stand out from the crowd, with a boat set up for singlehanded sailing, this is the one for you.
