REDWING 26 was designed for a client who wanted a larger version of the successful REDWING series to cruise the intercoastal waterways. She is designed for modest power including an outboard or inboard.
Speed is a relaxing 8 to 10 knots depending on power selected. A sound isolated engine will provide hours of silent cruising. She will be economical to power and cruise long distances on very little fuel. She has accommodations for two or four in her cozy cabin layout.
Cruising will be a joy as you cruise quietly enjoying the sights and sounds as you travel the waterways. Glue and screw construction is 1/2" plywood and epoxy over straight frames and bulkheads. The hull will go together quickly and finish and trim will take the most time depending on the level of finish desired by the owner. Plans include: materials, lines, set-up, construction, and arrangement.
We have added a new Box Keel Option for the Redwing 26. This can be an easy add on to the flat bottom version, inboard or outboard. Box keels are very popular on serious long distance passage makers for a good reason. Benefits of the box keel include:
All of these great features provide more comfort, safety and fun at little added cost. You will find much more capability for the dollar.
A new motor sailor version of the Redwing 26 has been designed. It has a shallow draft, ballasted keeland improved seakeeping ability.
Estimated cost for quality construction materials (not including power) is $30000. This cost includes a high level of outfit and finish you can be proud of after putting the effort into building this fine boat.
