David Feltham originally designed and built the first one for his own use which was mainly for racing. The early versions like mine had a low coachroof (without full standing headroom) and a smaller rig. Later versions had standing headroom, a taller rig and larger mainsail but were more prone to weather helm.

There have been several articles in the yachting press over the years and a few comments are listed below.

Yachts and Yachting November 1983
“The Seawolf 26 felt pleasantly stiff for a boat of her size.”

Yachting Monthly July 1995
“Stiff, quick and predictable, the Seawolf is a good seaboat.”

Rodger Witt – Editor at Sailing Today; Editor at Practical Boat Owner; “I took her out in a gusty Force 6 and was highly impressed with her stiffness, her easy going gait, and her ability to point. The Seawolf 26 is well balanced – responsive, directionally stable, and surprisingly nippy." - Rodger Witt

Practical Boat Owner October 1989
“In all, a very pleasant boat to sail.”

Owner's comments: I have owned this boat since 2009, when I lived in Kinsale. However my work as a professional delivery skipper required that I move to Dublin. Under the circumstances, I have not had time to use this boat.

Yachts and Sailing Cruisers are one of the most popular categories of boats sailed in Ireland and typically range in overall length (LOA) from about 6 metres (20ft) to well over 30 metres (98ft). Anything bigger and it's a super-yacht! Boats value in price from simple starter boats for less than €20,000 but go right up to over €1million. Regardless of what you are after, we have a huge range in our listings below:

There is a vast array of makes models and types of rigs so choosing a yacht for sale can be hard for a novice. How can you tell a Beneteau from a Jeanneau? What's the difference between a sloop and a ketch? Yachts and sailing cruisers are commonly know by their rig and sail plan types: a Bermudan sloop is of the most common but gaff and ketch rigs are one of the most popular categories of boats sailed in Ireland.

Most sailing cruisers on Irish waters are in the six to ten metre category and offer the protection of a cabin for over nighting and the Irish climate. There are different types of sailing cruisers including day sailors which are just one step up from a dinghy, weekenders which might have a twin keel and then sailing cruisers by the far the most common type of yacht in private use, making up most of the 7 metres (23ft) - 14 metres (46ft) range.

Sailing cruisers are used for many different activities from gentle harbour sailing and day cruising right up to blue water cruising and voyages across oceans. Smaller sailing cruiser examples are yachts from the Beneteau and Jeanneau ranges, Westerly, Albin Vega, Galion, Hurley, Jaguar, Etap to name just a few. From 20 foot trailer-sailers right up to Volvo Ocean Racers (VOR) they have all featured on our sailing cruisers for sale pages.

There is a very active racing scene around Irish water and each year sailing cruisers come together for national championships of all types of boats that compete together based on size and handicaps. Production boats compete with quite a lot of custom made sailing cruiser racers such as designs from the drawing boards of naval architects such as Mark Mills, John Corby, Jason Ker and Bruce Farr.
