1976 Snapdragon 890

Burnham-on-Crouch, United Kingdom

£12,500

A good example of this family cruiser with a sensible five berth layout. The twin keel configuration makes her ideal for exploring the shallow water of the East Coast and beyond. Pendragon has been in the same ownership for the past 27 years, during this time she has benefitted from sensible upgrades including replacement engine, wind generator, autopilot, Sailtainer boom reefing mainsail, holding tank and more. She is presented in good condition and has been well cared for, maintained very well and is ready for her next chapter.
