Frances 26 REDWING is for sale

REDWING is a Frances 26 a sea friendly cutter rigged classic yacht designed by Chuck Paine for his own use as the smallest sailing yacht that would be safe for extended offshore cruising. She is built of GRP by Victoria yachts and has full standing headroom
in a 4 berth cabin.


Although well suited to serious passage-making, the modest draft and easily handled sailplan also makes her ideal for exploring the shallow waters of the East Coast.
Redwing was commissioned in 1991 by her meticulous owner and is for sale ashore in Burnham On Crouch. She was winterised in late 2017 and has been ashore since.

She is presented for sale in very good overall condition with a comprehensive list of extras too many to mention here.
A new 16hp Beta twin cylinder diesel engine was fitted in 2014, she has an interior diesel heater, separate toilet compartment, twin gas burner, extensive navigation equipment. The Interior is finished in silver grey with blue upholstered cushions.
