Question Question 26ft Aluminium monohull Dewar Sloop

Hi All,

I would like to hear from you if you know or have sailed or have any additional specs on this yacht.

Displacement; 3500kg, Date Built; 2001, Designer; Jim Dewar, Builder; Dewar Marine, Hull & Deck Aluminium, Engine; Volvo Penta MD5A.

Regards,

Re: Question 26ft Aluminium monohull Dewar Sloop

Good afternoon,
No, but I saw the advert on Gumtree. Move on.

There are better boats available in that size and price range in SA. Look in SA Sailing mag's classifieds.
There is a Contessa 26. Make an offer of what you can afford. I know that guy. He is keen to sell to fund his bigger boat.
There are also 2 x Cape 28's in there. Again better boats. The one is brand new. Offer what you can afford. A mate of mine has just bought a top brand boat in SA at something like 35 percent less than the asking price!
The Contessa and the Cape 28 are both quite suitable for the SA coastline and even further.
Have fun.
Banjo.

Hi Banjo,

Thank you for the sound advice, I have made contact with the owners and I am waiting to receive photos and inventory lists. Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks for your advice.

There you go!

Congrats. That looks like a neat and well kitted out boat. I'm glad you found a good boat. Where was the boat lying? I'm trying to figure out where that is.

Many years ago I used to be an examiner and folk often chartered the local sailing school's Cape 28 for doing their test. Good solid boats.
That little boat will take you wherever you want to go.

Have fun,
Banjo.
