About this Sailboat:
I have lots of pics but only have an iPad right now and can’t get them up. I’m working on it. I can email them though. Ericson 26-300 hull number 388. Great boat ready for racing or cruising. Well equipped for a weekend out at the Cape or cruising the local backwaters and sounds. She’s the “largest” 26 footer I’ve ever had the pleasure of sailing and has been a great boat for introducing me and the family to cruising. Sleeps 4 real comfortably, 6 if you’re super good friends. She’s fast too. I regularly see 6 knots on a comfortable reach and will get more if I’m pushing her. The universal m12 has been reliable and smooth. This engine has the easiest access I’ve ever had on a small boat, huge selling point for me at the time. Maintenance on the engine is easy! Oil changed every 50 hrs with logs of maintenance and use by the hour. As I said, she’s been a great boat and I hate to see her go but it’s time to move on.
Equipment on Board:
DC electrical with two batteries in parallel. 500mW solar panel trickle charger has always kept them up the few times I’ve gone more than 2 weeks without taking her out. 10 gal whale gusher bilge pump in the cockpit and a 500 gal rule auto pump in the bilge for general use. Universal M12 11hp inboard diesel, extra belts, hoses, filters, and impellers. VHF, AM/FM radio with Cd player with inside speakers. Orio gas stove and a grill for the stanchions. Sails are in great shape, a 135 on a harken roller furling, a 150 ready to go, main sail, and spinnaker. Signet Marine instruments with depth, speed, and other options. Bottom was painted in April 2011and zincs changed. Shoot me an email and we’ll go sailing!!
