1982 LM 26
The LM 26 is a typically well-built Scandinavian motor sailer with surprisingly good sailing characteristics thanks to her fin keel and sailing focused hull design. Offering the practicality of a wheelhouse combined with a spacious cockpit, dual steering positions, and versatile interior space they really are an excellent choice. “Moin” is presented in good condition for her year. A 2019 survey report is available on request. Viewing highly recommended.
The accommodation offers up to five berths in the forepeak, saloon and cockpit with good headroom. Saloon consisting of two settee berths (port side converts to a double berth) either side of a central table mounted on the mast support with various storage lockers and the forepeak bulkhead folds down to form a decent double V berth. Heads compartment aft to port equipped with a marine toilet and sliding washbasin. Holding tank 140 litres. Large hanging locker aft to starboard. Companionway steps up to the wheelhouse with helm position to starboard and galley equipped with a 2-burner gas cooker, sink, fridge and ample storage. Large aft cockpit with two settee berths either side allowing the cockpit to be adapted for many uses such as dining alfresco, fishing or sleeping on warm summer nights. Pressurised water supply.
