Description: Great Boat for Tidewater Sailing

The Paceship PY26, with her ample beam, shallow keel and centerboard (2'3” draft with board up, 6'7” with it down) and tall cockpit coaming is a comfortable and dry coastal cruiser and club racer. Highly rated in seaworthiness and stability, she points well and “is surprisingly fast.” She's an ideal boat for the Chesapeake, handling open water sailing or gunkholing in shallow bays, rivers and creeks.

Both the cockpit and the cabin provide ample sailing, living and sleeping room for up to 5 people. Said one owner, “We cruise Long Island Sound for three weeks with three children, and stay sane.”

She is in very good condition and with her relatively simple systems is easy to maintain.

Paceships were a member of the AMF family of marine products that included Alcort Sailboats, Hatteras Yachts, and Robalo, Crestliner and Slickcraft power boats. In 1981, the PY26 molds were purchased by Tanzer in Canada and used to make the Tanzer 27.

The $3,900 asking price is way below book value and any reasonable offer will be considered.

She is in the water at the Wormley Creek Marina in Yorktown, VA

Equipment: She comes with three sails – main, 155 genoa and storm jib; an ever-reliableYanmar diesel, depth sounder, vhf radio, compass, auto-tiller pilot, hand held GPS and many other accessories. The interior is more spacious than one would expect in a boat of this size, offering over 6' of head room, forward V-berth and two settees; head compartment with vanity and sink; and galley with 125-lb. ice box, two-burner gimbaled stove and sink.
