View Full Version : A 26 with a head?

The original drawings had a step down head but I'm sure that reduced fuel capacity. So with that being said, are there any being built or have been built with a head? Is there room for aux fuel?
The 26 would be on the short list but I need to keep the admiral happy. Unfortunately, the 29 is to big for the lift and I'd prefer not to by another lift.

Thoughts?

thanks,
LD

127 views and there is not someone here that knows if there was a 26 built with a head?

I inquired (at the time the boat was ordered at the 2014 Miami Boat Show) about including a head on the 26 Hybrid I took delivery of in Sept. Heath said there wasn't a way to pull it off....just not enough room. After having the boat for a few months now, and not really having a lady onboard who HAD to have a head at her disposal, I'd agree with Heath...just enough room. I got the impression that they couldn't do a head or a anchor windlass on a 26. I got just about every other option and a head and windlass would have been nice. Going from an express boat to a center console, is going to be a learning experience in dealing with the reduced storage capabilities.

Per earlier reply post, a head still wasn't something they thought they could pull off early in 2015. There was an option for two additional side fuel tanks.

Hey Short Fuse-
Thank you for the reply. I talked to Heath last week and it seems there is something in the works for a head. My wife and I are going to go down to YF at the end of March and look at a 26 and discuss the possibilities.
The head is not a must have but a really nice to have for the wife. Our 24 is used for everything from sunset cruises to dinner, to pretty hard core striped bass fishing. The 26 looks like it might expand our opportunities and like everything else we do, I like having the wife involved as much as possible.

Lucky Dog -- If it wasn't for the Skiff Challenge starting today, I wouldn't have remembered about the YFO site. I bumped into it again while flipping around. Definitely a good idea to keep the wife involved with the program. All still good on this side with a drywall bucket for a head. Wife's still ok with it and we haven't had any other ladies onboard who required anything more elaborate. We're looking forward to some warmer weather and the start of the offshore season in MD. We'll see how the summer goes with/without a head onboard.
