Seen by many as a modern classic, the Invicta 26 was introduced to the great British yachting public as an alternative to the Folkboat. Whilst the Folkboat was predominately built from wood the Invicta 26 was built in the then, little known GRP. The boat was the brain child of the world renowned E.G. Van de Stadt who embraced the new moulding techniques of the time. This particular model was built by the Tyler Boat Co. of Tonbridge in 1966, and fitted out by William King of Burnham-on-Crouch, and has seen many years of good service. She is well maintained and will no doubt provide many more years of good service to her next owner.
This is a superb sailing boat and is equally at home in light airs as she is in a gale. The long keel with her encapsulated ballast makes her easy to handle and responsive on the helm. Her inboard Beta diesel offers reliability and economy and her deep self bailing cockpit offers security when sailing with the family.
If day sailing is your thing or perhaps you require greater adventure further afield, this boat will cope with whatever you throw at her. The Hasler self-steering gear and the Eberspacher heater both increase the scope for use.
Vessel can sleep 4 persons and is probably better suited to 2 adults and 2 children. The fore peak is used for sail storage and for housing the toilet. This craft had the gas system removed and the marine toilet removed for ease of maintenance. The addition of a chemical toilet makes sense as this is transportable and minimises number of holes in the hull.
On entering the cabin there are two quarter berths port and starboard that run aft beneath the cockpit. To starboard is a chart area with switch panel and VHF radio.
Opposite is the "Galley" area with gimbals for a single burner gas hob, sized also for 2-burner Origo spirit stove (no
