Saga Boats in Norway are renowned for their well crafted boats that have conservative styling and superb sea keeping qualities, this boat really will look after you in a seaway with its long keel & hull sections giving you the confidence you need.
The handling of the Saga 26HT is precise, the propeller is nicely tucked behind the keel which gives positive thrust to the rudder for quick response slow speed manoeuvring, added to this is the benefit of a bow thruster if really needed.
If you are looking for a good quality motor boat with some substance and top build quality then you should certainly consider this Saga 26HT.
I am a Master Mariner (All tonnage, all oceans) and have spent my life in ships and boats
I have owned "Bluey" for 14 years and selling her is like losing a friend, that has never let me down,
She has been maintained and serviced annually and winterised on the hard standing here for 5 months of each year
She is a good seaworthy vessel and has been used mainly for day outings with occasional longer trips to Falmouth, Fowey
and the Dart. Also overnighters to the River Yealm.
I am now 80, with some health issues so she is for sale. Should you buy you will own a good solid sea cruiser
Please look after her as I have
The boat has been designed with an open back to the wheelhouse, opening up the large cockpit to become part of the accommodation space, with the galley located between the inside & outside spaces.
The full cockpit cover opens up the cockpit to be usable in all weathers.
The boat also benefits from having infill cushions for the stern seating, this creates a large sunbed or could also be used as
a double berth during the summer season
The joinery is all in teak and is of real quality.
The accommodation below deck is accessed via a wide companionway to port of the helm station.
The U-shaped dinette provides a comfortable living space for crew, with the large centrally mounted table dropping down to create a large (1.89m long by 1.52m wide) double berth. Storage is provided within the cabin in the form of under bunk storage lockers, a large deep front opening locker in the bow and a half height hanging locker aft.
An additional compact single bunk is provided in the aft port section of the cabin with the bunk extending aft under the cockpit seating.
A dedicated heads compartment is provided at the aft starboard end of the cabin. Of a good size for a boat of 26' the compartment provides a manual sea toilet which discharges via a holding tank, there is also a hand basin, vanity unit & a shower with hot & cold pressurised water that has a separate shower sump discharging overboard.
