This Zap 26 was produced out of the Production Molds but not the Production Line. When the Zap Production ended a builder in the PNW got the molds and used Balsa and S-Glass. Built like a brick shit house this boat is without doubt a proper boat. Notice in the photos, the golden balsa core. Strong and stiff with a 5’5″ draft this boat points and goes, leaving others of similar size behind. When you turn the corner and hoist, you notice it has about 36″ longer ISP. Compined with a 34′ P and 11’E you have ample sailarea to break loose and go fast. With low wetted surface and a wide deck this boat is fast in light air and has plenty of power and speed in a breeze. At 3200 lbs and a flat bottom this boat breaks loose quickly. The boat in So Cal rates 135,135,135 phrf. I have the 2022 PHRF Cert and an ORRez cert too
On paper the SC27 and Zap 26 are almost identical except the Zap is a Frac Rig.There are only a few of these fast and fun boats sailing. This one is a Turn Key purchase. Buy it and go sailing, no work needed (maybe a good scrubbing).
As I am getting older (now 65) and also disabled (25 years in a wheelchair), it is getting tough for me to sail such a lively boat and have made the decision to sell. (must sell)
