Broker's Comments

The Newbridge Pioneer, designed by Bill Dixon (better known for his work with Moody Yachts), was first produced in 1985 and came in two versions. This is the Pioneer Pilot and the bilge keel model with twin helm stations making her a family cruiser with what is considered respectable performance under both sail and engine. She really has got lots of big boat features, a pilothouse with wheel steering, davits and a bow thruster are more than you'd expect to find on a 26' yacht!

Below can only be described as cavernous and is typical of British boat design in that everything has as many uses as possible. She is on a swinging mooring and the owner has not been well recently so she is in need of a good clean and tidy however, the standing rigging is 2023, as is the last engine service and there's plenty of equipment on board to get you cruising
