Remarks:

Based on the highly successful Pandora International, the Pandora 700 is a very capable little yacht. Fast and sea-kindly, and boasting comfortable accommodation for a couple or small family, she was designed to be equally suited to both racing round the cans and family cruising. This well presented example has been in the same ownership since 2004, and she benefits from several recent upgrades to her rig. An ideal first boat, and with her shoal draft bilge keels and mast lowering gear, also ideal for sailing the shallow waters of the Norfolk Broads and east coast. For sale due to the purchase of a motor cruiser.

Please note: Whilst no trailer is included in the sale, the vendor does have a 4 wheel trailer which is available by separate negotiation (asking price £1,500). The trailer isn’t currently configured to take a Pandora 700, but it could potentially be modified.
