The program of the Fast Launch 26 was an easy to build, economical, classic looking, semi-displacement commuter style boat. Easy to build with her flat bottom, classic looks with the Sparkman-Stephens Escort look, offshore capable thanks to her size, generous flare, good sized skeg and inboard diesel.
Her hull lines are well balanced and she will perform well in a wide range of speeds from economical displacement speed ( 7mph) to semi-planing at 18 mph with the 50 HP engine option.
Moderate stern volume and fine entry combined with a good size skeg will keep her on track in bad weather. The fine well immersed bow will reduce pounding and the generous flare in the topsides not only looks good but add reserve buoyancy. Draft is a moderate 22" with a well protected propeller. Shaft and prop will not suffer from occasional grounding.
