1972 Balboa 26 sailboat designed by Lyle Hess and manufactured by Coastal Marine. This boat is in sail-away condition completely fitted out for extended cruising. My wife and I have spent a month cruising each year on her for the past 9 years. Except for this year, she has been in fresh water during the time we have owned her. This spring, we spent a month sailing her from Fort Myers, Florida, south to and around the keys and then back to Miami. The boat is set up to sail-single handed with all lines leading back to the cockpit. The boat has been stored inside in a heated garage during the offseason. I have completely remodeled the inside using cherry paneling for the bulkheads and cherry wood for the table, lockers, and window frames. The cushions were recovered in 2009, the sails replaced in 2005. We designed the refit for comfort for two people. The 9.9 hp Yamaha outboard provides more than enough power to move her along at her designed hull speed. The boat has a 1200 lb swing keel with an 8 foot beam providing significant stability. The tandem axle trailer with electric brakes allows this boat to be easily trailed. We have hauled her to the west end of Lake Superior, Mystic, Connecticut and Miami, Florida from our home in Ohio. We have traveled the full length of Lake Superior and traveled down the rivers from Cincinnati, Ohio to Mobile, AL. The boat is basically a fresh water boat that has made a couple trips in salt water. We are selling her because as we get older, we feel we need something a bit more elderly friendly and larger in which to do our cruising. She is a fine boat in great shape with many added features.
