About this Sailboat:

26′ Tanzer Sailboat
This boat offers qualities that will appeal to the cruising family as well as the racing skipper. She provides both speed and responsiveness that is quite unusual for a production boat. But she is not just a fast sailboat that wins races. Her expansive and comfortable interior as well as forgiving nature make her a safe and easily handled cruising boat for the family. Quite rugged too; Tanzer 26 no. 226 sailed the North Atlantic from New York to Lorient France in 29 days.

These boats have a reputation as a good club racer, but they are equally well known a comfortable cruising boats that can easily accommodate an average size family. The Tanzer 26 is supported by an active network of owners, and they have even come up with a new rudder design to improve the boats’ handling characteristics. People sailing is shallow waters will be happy to note that the Tanzer 26 has a draft of 3 feet, 10 inches, which isn’t all that deep for a 26 footer with a fin keel.
