The LB26 is an excellent motor sailor with a deep, safe cockpit with a covered wheel house. The shallow draft (0.85 m) and bilge keels means that it possible to explore headwaters and creeks and dry out in safety. The accommodation is superb with 6 comfortable berths (2 doubles in the fore cabin and 2 singles in the aft cabin. There is 6 foot headroom in the fore cabin. The heads are equipped with a Jabsco manual flush toilet (new 2011).

It is highly recommended that the boat is viewed at its Southampton marina location. Please contact me for an on-shore viewing.
