Invicta 26

The Invicta 26 is a safe and seaworthy family cruiser with classic lines and long keel profile which offers good performance whilst remaining light on the helm. Often compared to the Contessa 26, the Invicta offers improved accommodation, greater headroom and moulded headlinings whilst still retaining much of the Folkboat inspired charm. This example is very well equipped including wind vane self steering equipment, electronic upgrades, deluxe cooker and upgraded winches.

Viewing by appointment only through our Essex office on (01621) 785600.
