1986 Vancouver 274 17,950
Designed by Robert Harris as a blue water cruiser for two, the Vancouver 274 is a good all-weather performer, strongly built to high standards. A small boat with large horizons, her long keel and cutter rig make her ideal for shorthanded sailing and her modest draft gives her shallow water capability as well. The traditionally laid out interior is not as spacious as some modern lightweights but has proven to be comfortable and practical offshore. A 2012 survey report available on request
