Fjord 26AC Cruiser
Used 1983 Fjord 26Ac Cruiser for sale in Stoke-On-Trent England. It has 2 cabins and a wheel house, the front cabin is nice and large with plenty of space and head height and has a seating area which converts into a double bed, a gas hob/grill, fridge, sink with hot and cold running water, lots of storage in cupboards and under seats and switch panel for lighting and water pump etc. In the back corner of the front cabin in its own room is a sea toilet with pullout sink. The wheel house again is very spacious with bench seating to the rear and 2 lift up drivers and co pilot seats to the front of the cabin. This area is covered by the red hood which can be unclipped and folded down to the rear for summer cruising. The windscreens have 2 wipers for sea and bad weather sailing, comprehensive switch panel (for marker lights, bilges etc) and a bank of engine gauges and controls showing rpm, charging, oil pressure water temperature, depth and speed meter etc. Along with engine and steering controls as you would expect. There is also the main battery isolator switch that allows single or dual batteries to be switched from the wheel house. Under the lift up wheel house floor there is the engine in the centre with stern drive along with hot water tank, fresh water tank and dual batteries. There is a split charge system with a leisure battery and an engine battery. The rear cabin has built in seating boxes with under storage that can sleep 3, 1x double bed and 1x single bed (there are no cushions for the beds but the seat/bed bases are present). Stored here are the cushions from the wheel house seats and the curtains, all of which have been washed and wrapped in plastic to keep clean. The boat is in great condition and is welcome to any inspection and unusually for most boats this size is out of the water so the hull can be inspected which is in excellent condition. The boat is on a yard trailer, the trailers chassis is in good conditioning with only a couple of small areas of rust but the indespension units are in poor shape (with one of the centre units having rotted off completely) and there is no working braking system although the trailer did have hydraulic brakes at some time. The boat is sold advising to move on a low loader but the trailer is salvageable with time and money being spent on it and comes with the boat. The previous owner replaced the original Volvo Penta diesel engine with a Marinised Ford 2.5D transit engine which is a popular choice for inland waterways and considerably cheaper to maintain and better on fuel than the original Penta engine. The engine hasn’t done very much work since being fitted and as can be seen in the pictures is very clean with a good installation and easy access. We started the engine and ran for less than a minute last week to make sure everything was OK and charging voltage and oil pressure etc was good. • Length: 27ft (8.24m) • Year: 1983 • Berths: 5 • Engine: Diesel 2.5 Ford • Fuel: Diesel • Beam: 9ft 10in (3m) • Draught: 2ft 8in (0.81m) • Air Draught: 7ft 8in (2.34m) • Extras: Hot water, fridge, bathing platform, ladder, davits.
