The Seawolf 26 (CR) is a design with very many advanced features. Built for the cruising/racing enthusiast, she has a fractional rig. This rig offers a very wide scope for sail adjustment in order to extract that little extra performance that can make all the difference.
Serious cruising and swift passage-making are made easy with this outstanding 26 footer. This boat has a low IRC handicap in the 0.840s and the performance produced makes it well capable of competing in its class. the boat is also a safe family cruising boat for all purposes.
The decks are non slip and there is a substantial anchor locker forward with good mooring cleats fore and aft.
The deck layout has a self-draining LPG gas/rope locker and a deep locker to port for sail storage.
The yacht in 1986 from a bare hull I brought in from the UK.
the interior layout is basically the same as the original design but has the addition of a full-sized cooker grill and oven, a folding dining table, navigation station, and folding chart table. The heads has a wash hand basin on the portside as well.
Externally I fitted a small bulbous bow to the stem to improve tracking when going to windward.
The cast iron fin keel has been faired to a NACA profile as the original had too fine an entry which caused it to stall and increase leeway.
Moved the Shroud chainplates inward to improve the genoa sheeting angle.
I removed the original rudder skeg and fabricated a new balanced aerofoil type blade rudder to make it much easier to helm the boat. lastly, we built an extension stern scoop onto the transom which has the advantage of extending the WL and at the same time makes it easier to board from a Rubber dinghy.
In the cockpit, there is a GPS navigation plotter and a depth and speed log,
there are two other instruments that are non-operational
there is also a Plastimo compass and NASA wind direction and speed indicator.
The NAV station below is fitted with a folding chart table, VHF 55CH GMDS Marine RT, Nasa sounder, MFHF receiver, a NASA AIS plotter, a clock, a tide clock, and barometer.
The engine is a single-cylinder Arona (Italian) 8hp diesel that has been recently fully overhauled.
The stern gear is Stainless steel 25mm with a two-bladed folding Gori propellor with a P bracket cutlass bearing with greased packing gland. The SS fuel tank has a capacity of 30L and is built into the transom. Engine cruising speed is 6.5Kns from 7.5 HP.
The electrics are 12VDC with a shore supply of 220 VAC with sockets.
There are two 120 AMP hour batteries charged by the engine alternator and a shore power charger.
