Broker's Comments

If you are looking for a 26 footer that you can race, that will fulfil its role as a pocket family cruiser and come at a very reasonable price then take a look at the Trapper 300.

With it’s wide beam, flared topsides and deep keel, it’s been said that they are fast to windward and not slow off the wind either.

This example benefits from the longer racing keel, 2010 standing rigging and a freshly scrubbed hull. Lines lead aft to cockpit and the deck is painted in blue non slip.

A PBO review once stated that these boats are “light on the helm and delightfully responsive; one of the few boats that you want to sail for the pure fun of sailing."

A good all rounder to get you on the water and to introduce your family to the joy of sailing.
