As a double-ended coastal cruiser, the Frances 26 was made for fast, simple sailing. Chuck Paine, her designer, created the first version of the Frances 26 for his own personal use and embodied everything he knew about the design of efficient cruising yachts.
"Bluegrass" has been well proven in current ownership, and single-handed in a number of tough offshore races. Her incredibly high ballast ratio (54%), sea-kindly hull and safe cockpit provide security in a Sea that only a very small percentage of yachts can offer.
