This Hunter 26 is a unique sailboat which features 2000 lbs. of water ballast which can be drained for trailer transport. (Trailer included)
This sailboat features a new Nissan 8 horsepower outboard 4 stroke engine with ELECTRONIC START. In addition to the water ballast, the sailboat also features a retracting centerboard which results in a draft of only 1.75 feet when retracted making it suitable for shallow water operations, beaching, or easy trailering. (No need to disconnect trailer from the hitch when trailering, just back the trailer into the water, pull the boat on, and then drain the ballast immediately after pulling out of the water)
With the water ballast full and the centerboard deployed, the draft is only 6 feet which makes it suitable for sailing in shallow water compared with many other sailboats.
This sailboat comes equipped with a cooking stove, fresh water system, and head, so despite being easily transportable by trailer, it is much more than a daysailer.
Boat is very clean and has just been hauled out of the water and had all biofouling (Zebra mussels) removed and is ready to for lake or intracoastal waterway deployment.
Its sailplan is a fractional rigged sloop and hull speed is 6.44 knots which can easily be obtained using the motor or sails which are included and in great condition.
The trailer is adjustable to fit many different types of sailboats and is just about the biggest trailer you can pull using a half ton pick up. (Pulls fine with an F-150 V6 Eco-Boost)
