Balboa 26 Trailerable Sailboat
The boat is a 1973 trailerable Balboa 26 with a swing keel. Length: 25.6 ft. Beam: 8.0 ft. Draft: 5 ft. (keel down), 1.8 ft. (keel up) Displacement/weight: 3,600 lbs Designed by: Lyle Hess Full details here: http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=484 Sails: Two mainsails and a roller furling 130 jib. All in serviceable condition. Outboard motor: 1996 Yahama 4 stroke. Electric start with charging system. There are controls on the tiller handle for throttle and a kill engine button. There is also a shifter lever on the tiller handle but the connecting cable needs to be replaced. Trailer: 1973 tandem axle trailer custom built for the Balboa 26. The boat is regularly launched and retrieved with the trailer at Souris harbor. It is sturdy and roadworthy for short trips. The boat was hauled from Detroit on this trailer 5 years ago but will need new axles with brakes to pass inspection on PEI and be registered. Gear: Usual sailboat gear including fenders, bumper lines, anchor, anchor rode, shorelines, etc. Two marine batteries. Electric macerator head/toilet. Bimini. Sails and reefing lines all lead to the cockpit and can be managed there by the single-handed sailor. General: This would be an excellent sailboat for the budget-minded sailor who wants to keep his/her operating costs at a minimum because the boat can be stored, launched or retrieved with the trailer. And because it does not exceed 26 ft in length, most home insurance policies can be used to insure the boat...Summary: Used 1973 Other Balboa 26 Sailboat for sale in Souris Prince Edward Island - Canada .
