I am selling my yacht as I am considering upgrading to a larger boat.AVA is a 1969 Bowman 26. The Bowman 26 is a very solidly built small cruiser, a Folkboat derivative, with a deep cockpit, long full keel and transom hung rudder. Unlike Folkboats the Bowman 26 has full standing headroom. Less than 30 Bowman 26’s were built. Fitted out as a GRP masthead sloop, the mast sits in a tabanacle and employs twin backstays.Length 26 ft, Beam 8 ft, Draft 4 ft.Displacement 2.26.tons, sail area 313 sq ft.The website dedicated to Bowman26 yachts is available at www.bowman26.comI have had AVA for 5 years and she has given myself and my wife tremendous enjoyment.
