Broker's Comments

Solid, strong and seaworthy, the MacWester 26 has a good following. Designed and built to a very strong spec these boats are all but indestructible.

Popular with new and experienced mariners alike, these built to last coastal cruisers will keep you safe and sheltered with their high cockpits sides. Whilst their shoal draft will allow you to explore shallow waters, creeks, drying harbours & even sandy beaches, the combination of bilge keel and long skeg will give you the ability to take the ground comfortably.

Although this example could do with a little t.l.c., there are berths for 4 adults, good headroom in the saloon for a vessel of this size and a reliable engine that I'm told starts first time every time.

Owned since 1982, this is a good, safe, coastal cruiser at a bargain price.
