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.

What our customers say
Thank you very much for sorting out the radio licence for our boat.
Jen and I are totally thrilled with our purchase from Sea Ventures (based on your recommendation) and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you especially and your colleagues for all the expert help and attention you have given us. We couldn't have been in better hands and the process has been a pleasure - particularly as previously we had no experience of boats whatsoever!
