Pegasus 800


Boat Description

Spell Bound is a great platform for budget friendly sailing, the Pegasus 800 offers a lifting keel for enhanced sailing and low draft, perfect for the quiet and tranquil creeks we are so lucky to have here on the East Coast, Spell Bound has been in her present ownership as a second boat, and before that was used to sail occasionally on the river Orwell and the Norfolk Broads, from what we can see she has been lovingly cared for and still has many original features, the Beta 10 HP is in a cosmetically pleasing condition and is said to start first time every time, all in all this represents a great cruiser for the money – Spell Bound is ready to go and could even be launched tomorrow, take advantage of this mid summer bargain and get out on the water whilst the sun is shining! Currently lying ashore (with good launching provision) in Benfleet, Essex, to arrange a viewing please contact or 01702 599018.
