26′ Auxiliary Ketch

Based on a traditional fishing vessel type called a “Cowhorn” this design features an inboard engine and ballast keel.

The arrangement provides two berths, a head and modest galley. The divided cockpit provides access to the engine and separates passengers from the helmsman and tiller.

The ketch rig provides versatility and helps to make this boat fast and a delight to sail.

Basic wood construction with detailed plans and specifications to expedite assembly.

This design has been constructed by both professional and amateur builders.
