Super Seal 26 fixed fin keel cruiser/racer Ron Hol

Racing Cruiser "Tango" (1980)

Very successful fast cruiser designed by Ron Holland in the mid-seventies. Well built with useful accommodation and a quoted 5ft 8in headroom despite a low profile and a slippery shape. Although Ron Holland's reputation was that of a racing designer, the Seal 26 design was not constrained by any racing considerations, although fast. She is aimed at the family cruiser man or woman who wants performance and impeccable manners.
