General Details

JOY is an impeccably-kept Great Harbor 26 daysailer/pocket cruiser with her own trailer and protective covering.  Retractable keel, 9-hp diesel, carbon spar, holding tank.  Cold molded and 2' draft with board up. White bulkheads, magohany trimmed interior. 


JOY  is a pocket cruiser/daysailer that can be relocated to winter or summer cruising grounds with ease by using her included trailer. Built to standards that simply are not found anywhere else in boats of this size, JOY was designed and constructed with features that are a combination of the traditional and modern. Bill Cook developed the lines of the 26 to provide lively performance. Her fin keel and spade rudder with sleek underbody are disguised by her lovely cruiser exterior look. Since her fin keel lifts up into the hull and the rudder is removable, JOY is easily trailerable. Constructed with an eye towards saving weight without sacrificing structural strength. Carbon fiber spar to keep the rig weight low and ease the process of raising and lowering the rig.
Hull construction:   Cold molded. It contains three diagonal layers of 1/8" western red cedar with a final layer of 1/10" Honduran mahogany on the topsides. The hull is covered with 8 oz boat cloth applied with clear epoxy resin. The final finish is clear Awlgrip urethane. The backbone is oak and the stem laminated mahogany. Sheer clamps are oak. JOY's interior is designed to minimize the need of frames and stringers. Much of her interior joinery is installed to provide stiffness. Deck Construction:   The deck is two layers of 4MM marine plywood over laminated aircraft grade Sitka spruce frames, covered with approximately 7/16" of teak decking. The cabin top is three layers of 3MM marine plywood over laminated aircraft grade Sitka spruce frames. The top is then coved with Dynel laid in epoxy and painted. The cabin sides are approximately 3/8" Honduran mahogany over 3/8" marine plywood. Fin Keel - Lifts up into the hull Spade rudder
White bulkheads are beautifully accented by the varnished mahogany trim. Laminated overhead beams are also capped in mahogany and much of the trim is hand shaped to give it a distinctive appearance. The cabin sole is teak with holly inlay varnished with clear polyurethane varnish and the passageway to the forward cabin is trimmed with laminated mahogany. All the interior trim is coated with gloss marine varnish. Bronze opening ports are used throughout along with an opening hatch on the foredeck to improve light and ventilation. Vessel Walkthrough: Down the companionway steps to the Interior below, one steps on the ice chest that also can serve as a seat for working in the Galley. This portable chest is convenient in that you can take it home and load up for the day or weekend. To port and starboard are 7-foot Quarterberths with 4" cushions. Forward to starboard,at the head of the starboard quarterberth is the electrical panel and a storage locker containing the stereo and access to the VHF back. Forward to port, at the head of that berth is the Galley with a stainless steel sink with a hand pump and is recessed under a lovely shaped mahogany ring. Forward is a single-burner Origo alcohol stove. Lots of storage is accessed beneath both the sink and the stove.  At the forward end of the starboard quarterberth are the storage lockers and drawers.  The aft locker has the shore charger and stereo. Stereo speakers are built in to the aft ends of the quarter berths. VFH has a remote mic outlet in the cockpit to control the radio from the helm. Forward Cabin has the cedar hull laminate showing through its epoxy coating. Shelves provide additional personal gear storage. The marine Head is located to port under the aft end of the forward berth and has a cover and cushion (as does the starboard side also) - so the permanent "short berth" can be lengthened to a full length berth to accommodate an additional two crew.
