Rodgers 26, 1981

A truly unique club racer/cruiser with wonderful lines

The Rodgers 26 rates the same as a J-24 and is an ideal yacht for racing in LI Sound. She’s got a powerful sail plan supported by a keel stepped mast that makes her a light to moderate air rocket/rule beater which guarantees lots of fun and silver. The Rodgers 26 features a broad easily traversed deck with a spacious cabin below. Will easily accommodate a crew of four (five when racing).
