Broker's Comments

It is a testament to this design that originally Chuck Paine drew the Frances 26 double ender for his own use as a small ocean voyager, a task which they have shown themselves adept at.

This boat has been the subject of several recent updates including: a new engine, gearbox and shaft, new upholstery, replacement standing rigging, re-wiring, a new gennaker and a new cooker. Some additional attention to the internal carpentry would complete the transformation into a really nice little cruiser.

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