1988 Feeling 326

Burnham-on-Crouch, United Kingdom

£29,950

The Feeling 326 is a very spacious cruising yacht with a modern style layout providing excellent accommodation with a particularly spacious feeling saloon. This desirable lift keel version is equally suited to exploring local estuaries or cruising further afield and in recent years has had the keel system completely overhauled and standing rigging replaced. She has wintered ashore every season for at least the last 14yrs and has clearly been well looked after with various upgrades and improvements. Only for sale due to a change of her owner's plans she represents excellent value and a recent survey is available.

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