This is understood to be a very well presented example of the ever popular Pegasus 800. The current owner is also the original owner – having sold the boat to a friend in 1996, he regretted his decision so much that he re-purchased her four years later when the opportunity arose! She has been overwintered ashore every year since new and her hull is understood to be in very good condition. With her very desirable wing keel and fractional rig, early viewing is highly recommended!

This Pegasus 800 was under offer within 24 hours of the vendor contacting us!!! More similar yachts wanted!!!
