SEAWARD 26 RK CONTINUED
The new Seaward 26 RK is a refinement of our time-tested 25 model, with the following additions: electrically-operated vertically retracting keel, vertically retracting rudder, and open walkthrough reversed transom with resultant extended waterline.
Low center of effort sailplan, low center of gravity, considerable hull-form stability, and ballast low in a bulb at the keel bottom combine to make the boat extremely stable. Modern sailplan, clean underbody and high aspect foils assure satisfying performance on all points of sail. Keel and rudder may be positioned anywhere within their range limits, allowing the boat to sail in water as shallow as 18", yet be extremely able offshore.
We are offering the Seaward 26 with a great deal of latitude for customization. In base form, she has an open, airy interior with curtains for privacy between v-berth area and main salon, and across the head compartment opening. Teak bulkheads and doors are available options. Trailering is easier than ever for a boat this size. The Seaward 26 sits low on its trailer, and with its long waterline, it's stern
floats quickly, even at marginal ramps. The optional mast raising system takes the physical exertion out of mast stepping.
