The Donovan 26 One Design is an evolution of the successful GP26 built by Wraceboats. This design demonstrated exceptional speed and control at regattas in the U.S., Europe and Asia, regularly finishing ahead of the competition and gaining praise from the crews who sailed aboard. The Donovan 26 One Design retains all the attributes of its predecessor featuring a stable and balanced hull form, deep fin keel with 47% ballast ratio, efficient carbon fiber rudder, and easily controlled and tough carbon fiber rig. The sailplan has been upgraded with a larger square-top mainsail and extended boom and sprit to provide extra power for higher performance. Stepping aboard the boat the impression is this is a much larger yacht; the spacious cockpit has been extended forward, deck house reduced and hardware refinements include a standard spinnaker takedown system. Advanced construction utilizes epoxy vacuum laminates with an all carbon fiber keel frame and carbon appendages that produce an extremely durable light weight structure. You owe it to yourself to go for a sail aboard a Donovan 26 One Design to experience this superior racing yacht.
