About this Sailboat:
The Seafarer 26 is a well-designed and well-built sailboat with features not normally found on similar classic designs. These boats have a solid reputation and offer a spirited sailing experience. With fin keel, skeg mounted rudder, wheel steering, cockpit control for all running rigging, heavy duty hull, and 5200 lb displacement, wind dancer regularly outperforms boats in and above her class in light or heavy winds, and is easily singlehanded. When other boats are reefing she can go full sail. Points easily in an 80 degree swing and tighter. With teak toe rails, hand rails and trim she looks as good as she sails without adding a lot of extra maintenance. When motoring at 5-7 knots steady she will easily run 3-4 hrs per gallon of fuel. Heavy duty hull is like new. V-berth sleeps two, head/ sink to port, hanging locker starboard, pull-out double berth to port and settee to starboard main salon, w/ bulkhead mounted drop down table, galley athwartships to aft of main salon,with 2 burner alcohol stove, pressure water sink, cutting board/stove cover, ice box. Head room is 6-3 and berths are also 6-3.
