Hi
Anyone familiar with the Australian made triton 26? This particular one was Built in 1975 in Sydney.

Hi Tom
Thanks for that, that's good to know, its pretty hard to get any info on them. I am about to buy a triton 26 through a friend, other than some cracking on the deck and some water leaks through rigging points and some heavy oxidisation of the gelcoat she appears to be in pretty good nick, was the 24 a diesel inboard? If so what type of motor was it?

Cheers

Re: Triton 26

I used to race and cruise on a Triton 24 for several years, they are a great boat. I've sailed up and down the NSW coast several times as well nad they are quite capable offshore. I think most are outboard driven, from a well in the cockpit, although a did know of a few with diesel inboard.
