This boat “Malaika” with a fixed keel sailed across the Atlantic and trans-Pacific to Honolulu.
The Super Seal 26 is a modern-styled lifting keel fast cruiser, designed by Ron Holland, formerly of Kinsale, Ireland, one of the most successful racing yacht designers. With a deep, high-aspect ratio drop keel, and an efficient 7/8 fractional sloop rig, she offers excellent sailing performance plus the ability to use drying moorings, and well-fitted, comfortable accommodation for up to five.
In December 2000 “Sailing Today” magazine listed the Super Seal as one of the “top five used boats of the year”, along with some old favourites such as the Contessa 32 and Elizabethan 30. Their review gave it five stars for performance, and four for accommodation, which they described as “…. much better than you would expect in such a fast boat.”
