Designed and built locally, the Pegasus 800 remains an eminently popular Broads cruiser/racer for both beginners and seasoned sailors alike thanks to her renowned good performance (particularly the wing keel version) and spacious, comfortable accommodation. This example has benefited from regular updates and improvements, and has cruised both the Broads and the east coast with her current owner since 2011. She was re-engined with a Yanmar diesel inboard engine in 2000, and with recent new sails and having all lines led back to the cockpit, she is ideal for single/short handed sailing. She also has a cockpit tent which provides an extremely useful third ‘room’ when moored overnight. A great option for both coastal and Broads sailing!

Further photos coming soon.

MOORING: It’s understood that it may be possible for the purchaser to take over this vessel’s very desirable northern Broads mooring (current cost approximately £700 per annum).
