The Tiki 26 was designed by James Wharram Designs (www.wharram.com) as a bigger sister to their Tiki 21 camp cruiser, which won a Cruising World design competition when it was originally conceived in 1983.
The Tiki 26 has 2 large bunks and 2 small bunks in the hulls, with the
ability to sleep additional folks on deck. The hulls have sitting
The Tiki 26 is a trailer sailer that is also capable of long ocean voyages. A Tiki 26 has competed in the OSTAR, a single-handed trans-Atlantic race, and a smaller Tiki 21 circumnavigated back in the early 90s. She would also make an excellent daysailing passenger or fishing vessel with her large, clear decks, and could be stored on a trailer for maintenance or during the off season.
This example of the lovely Tiki 26 was hand-built in Canada in 2003 and brought to the US by a previous owner. Her Jones Act Waiver paperwork is in process, after which she will be legal to operate as an uninspected passenger vessel (6-pack) in the US. She will also continue to be a legal recreational vessel. She was last hauled and surveyed in September of 2012.
She is in sail away condition as she lies (last sailed three days ago), but she will need some maintenance in the coming year. She is ready for fresh paint over her whole structure, and is due for renewal of running rigging and beam lashings. There are a couple of non-structural rot pockets in toerails and hatch covers that were not epoxy sealed at construction. The hulls and crossbeams, which were glassed and expoxied, are solid and show no signs of deterioration.
She usually lives in her slip at Deer Harbor on Orcas Island in Washington state. Continued moorage should be no problem if desired.
She includes a 6 hp extra-long shaft Tohatsu outboard.
