DD 26 Trailer Cruiser

This spacious and fast design by Dix Design has a number of options, from the longer racer cockpit and an adequate interior, to the shorter cockpit and much larger interior, which also includes a double berth, not bad for a 26ft yacht! You can also extend the rear transom and install a boarding scoop; some have made their boats 15 % larger by extending the hull sides upwards. If the spacing to the bulkheads is increased you will have a boat that is nearly 30ft long!!

Our kit supplies all of the components from the, hull, deck, internal bulkheads to the cockpit and coachroof. The scaphs required for the bulkheads are pre-cut so you cannot make a mistake during assembly.
