The Voyager 26 has proven to be a really good little pocket cruiser. The design features a full keel with moderately cutaway forefoot and of course she is a double-ender. So, she incorporates all those nice seakeeping qualities that Colin Archer and Bill Atkin double-enders had while having improved sailing performance. Ergo she's faster than most boats of the genre. There were three different builders for the Voyager 26 and happily all of them were committed to doing a good job building her and stuck pretty close to our original design. The boats had comfortable and roomy accommodations for four. At least let's say as roomy as you can expect in 26 feet. But, there was a efficient galley, a private head and berths you could actually sleep on. The cockpit was good sized although the foot well was intentionally kept on the small size so that a lot of water would not be held if she ever got pooped. The cutter rig is well balanced and offered a good variety of sail combinations  in different wind conditions. Though she sails equally well as sloop with main and genoa.
