This 26' version of the Golden Bay has the same fairly high and flaired bow sections designed to throw off spray which flow into aft sections which have tumblehome giving her a generous waterline beam for maximum stability.
These drawings show her with a canvas top and a 34hp diesel engine but she could take a solid cabin similar to that on the 21' version and she may be powered by a steam plant (around 15 IHP) or by electric motor.
Construction is for Cedar strip over computer faired moulds. The interior shows simple open plan seating for 8 people but she may be fitted out with other arrangements.
