This is well-cared for express cruiser with all the comforts of a much larger boat.
This Ray Hunt designed, limited production express cruiser provides maximum comfort and cruising amenities yet is still trailerable and economical to run.
Use the dinette or convert it to a huge V-berth which is truly comfortable and spacious.
This Constellation is clean and ocean ready. You won't find a more versatile and seaworthy boat for this size.
The 26 Constellation is powered by a 320-hp Volvo Penta 5.7-liter gas sterndrive with a Duoprop which allows easy maneuvering at the dock.
The boat has good fuel economy, averaging 2 to 3 miles per gallon. Top speed is 40 mph at about 4,800 rpm, and the boat cruises at 29 mph at 3,200 rpm. The previous owner changed the marine gauges in 2014. The present gauges do not reveal the motor hours. We were told that the boat had approximately 420 hours back when the boat was bought. Since then the boat has been used for less than 50 hours. Feel free to have your mechanic do a compression check. The compression was checked when it was bought and it was perfect.
It takes a chop well because of the 20-degree deadrise better than some more expensive cruisers I have been on.
Sleeps four, bathroom with shower/head combo, toilet, 2 sinks infrared stove top, plenty of storage, counter space and more. Cockpit cover and full bimini. No bottom paint. Plenty of head room for the taller individual : )
Please note as you look at the images that there are several images with a black dot. For some reason the lens was not totally clean when some of the photos were taken : )
