Colvic Sailer 26

Brief Notes


Hulls moulded by Colvic Craft, fitted out by various yards, also many yachts home completed

A small family cruising yacht with a surprisingly spacious interior for her size, with twin bilge keels allowing drying out. As many boats were home completed standards of fitout and finish can range from poor to very good indeed.

Keel type

Most yachts sold were twin bilge keel, though fin keel versions were also built

Colvic Sailer 26

The Colvic Sailer 26 hulls were designed by David Feltham, and moulded by Colvic Ltd., and sold in quite large numbers both to professional boatyards and to home completers for fitting out. One of the major builders using these hulls was Atlanta, who sold the resulting boat as the Atlanta 26.

The hulls have twin bilge keels moulded in as an integral part of the hull, with internal encapsulated ballast. These keels are near vertical, unlike the angled-out bolt-on iron keels keels found on yachts such as the Westerly Centaur. This made moulding easier but is less efficient under sail.

The saloon usually has the galley and a quarter berth to starboard, and a long settee berth with fold-out table to port. This port settee converts to a narrow double berth. Saloon headroom is about 5' 8"

As many boats were home completed to individual ideas,
you will often find alternative layouts, as seen here and below
