Broker's Comments

The Feeling 286 Special is a modern cruiser offering excellent sailing performance alongside good accommodation. They have an aft double cabin and then a forward double in the forepeak; this "open plan" style makes for a light airy interior made possible by putting the engine uder the saloon table.

This boat has had only light use and has been well cared for and updated over the current ownership.

Well worth a viewing if you are looking for a boat that not only has great performance but also roomy accommodation.
