Balboa 26ft
Hey all... I'm mostly a lurker here and do a lot of reading! I'm not near the big water yet, but we do have some lakes about and I believe I'm ready to start looking for my first sailboat.

I've been looking for some information on this boat and what opinions on it are out there. I want something to just play around with, fix up and bring the family out on weekends. She has 2 sails and a jib but I'm not sure of the condition. I can get it for less than a couple thousand. Any advice is welcome, such as what I should look for before buying this. I plan on going to look at her tomorrow.

A good starting point here:

BALBOA 26 Sailboat details on

Search this forum and you will find plenty of info on what to look for and what to avoid when buying a boat.

Balboa has a good designer behind her, so the rest is how good the boatyard is/was, and how much TLC the boat received under her owners.
