Broker's Comments

This Feeling 286 S is a little quirky yacht. It is modern in style and offers
comfortable accommodation for 6, It has a spacious interior with a wrap around saloon, although the forward bunk space is slightly compromised as a result.
Unusually the engine is located beneath the saloon table and offers good access for the routine maintenance.
Recently the yacht has been used often cruising the coastal waters of Cornwall.
At the time of the listing the yacht was afloat at her mooring, however, for the winter she will be stored ashore in her cradle, which is included with the sale. There is also a possibility thye mooring will be available too, although this has to be confirmed.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
