The Great Harbor 26 is an example of Maine
craftsmanship at its finest. Sailors who desire a finely finished
yacht now have the option to own a pocket cruiser that has the workmanship
to rival anything on the water. Bill Cook, the 26's designer,
has developed a smartly performing sailboat which Hank Hinckley builds
with exquisite detail.
Here is a trailerable yacht to explore prime cruising grounds without the hastle
of dealing with lengthy passages.
Weighing in at a bit over 3600 pounds and with a keel up draft of 1' 10",
the boat can be easily trailed by many vehicles and
launching is practical on most ramps.
Classic lines enhance the package, making the GH26 one of the prettiest boats around.
Each boat is built to order with as much owner involvement
as desired. Here is your opportunity to have a custom boat built for
you by Hank Hinckley and to participate in the process as much or as
little as you like.
No two 26s are alike. DILIGENT, the first 26, was designed to meet Hank's family's
needs with a full galley, enclosed head and 4 berths. Later 26s have
uniquely reflected their owners.
