GH26 #5 is an opportunity for a prospective owner to customize his or her boat right at the factory. Presently in sailing condition but with many details still open, it allows an extraordinary amount of flexibility in equipment and decor at exceptional costs.
This Great Harbor 26 Daysailor (GH26DS) is a development of the original "Weekender" version. Accepting that most people only use the boat on a daily basis and might only get in the cabin for a cold drink or to sit out the rain, we redesigned the deck and layout to accommodate those needs and to simplify the boat.
The result is a lovely traditional look on a boat that will sail with the best. This boat was launched at Gibson Island in the Chesapeake in October. We had her docked near the Annapolis Sailboat Show for demonstration but did not put her in the show as we had not completed many of the final details of her construction. She is now back in Maine and ready to be completed. We hope that a prospective owner will find her to be interesting in that they can take an active part in her finish.
To keep her cabin open, we built this boat with a fixed keel. It has the same underwater profile as the lift keel 26s, but does not have the keel trunk located in the cabin necessitated by the lifting mechanism and clearance for the keel. The boat still is of a beam and length to be trailerable and she is a bit lighter as a result of not having the lift keel accommodations.
Down below, the interior is designed to be comfortable and open. The short berth forward is primarily built as a berth for the younger set. The comfortable seats are just right for settling in with a book on a rainy afternoon or waiting out a squall.
We are installing a stainless steel ice box in the port counter and a sink with hand pump for potable water in the starboard side. The marine head is located under the port seat. There is a holding tank with deck pump out fitting located under the forward berth.
