Bristol 26 (description and review from bristolsailboats web site) The Bristol 26, also known as the Sailstar 26, was marketed in 1968 as a spacious sailboat in the days when sitting headroom was not unheard of in vessels this size. "This is the space age, and Halsey Herreshoff has made the Bristol 26 synonymous with space. It is the only 26-foot boat on the market with a fully-enclosed head, dinette, hanging locker, and sleeping accommodations for five," the Bristol brochure said."It offers full headroom below and an extra large cockpit. Compare her size-wise with boats up to thirty feet long. The magic word is 'spaciousness. '"More than 230 of the B26s were manufactured by Bristol from 1968 to 1978 in a keel version that draws 3 feet, 10 inches and a centerboard model that draws 2 feet, 10 inches with the board up.Drawings show that the B26 has a long fin keel with a spade rudder, as opposed to other Bristols of this era, which have full keels with rudders attached to them. Still, this is a seaworthy and stable boat, with a motion comfort ratio of 23.75 that is far better than most 26-footers.With a beam of 8 feet, spacious may be going a little too far in describing the B26, and sleeping five adults would definitely be cramped for all but the closest of friends, but the cabin is respectable for a boat this size. Headroom is about 5 feet, 10 inches.The stern has an outboard well with storage for a gas can. It includes an aperture on the transom that makes it possible to tilt the motor out of the water."This enables you to eliminate most of the fouling and corrosion of the lower unit," Bristol said in its brochure.If you're buying a B26 and want to install a new outboard, it's a good idea to measure the engine and the well, which was designed for older and smaller two-strokes instead of today's heavier four-strokes.
