Broker's Comments

A modern styled 26-footer from Rydgeway Marine, the Pegasus 800 is an attractive small cruiser with a well-finished interior.

Nominally six berth, she is in fact much more practical for two to four. With six foot headroom, she has a surprising spacious and comfortable saloon.

Many of the centreboard and bilge keeled versions of these boats were used on the Norfolk Broads, but they are also capable family coastal cruisers.

This vessel has been re-engined and is with apparently good sails and, as evidenced by the photographs, been superbly maintained and upgraded by the current owner
