I bought my Johnson 26 the summer of '97, and would like to share some info on her. As this is a pretty rare boat these days, I hope you don't mind me being quite detailed in the technical description.
These technical data are taken from a review found in the Norwegian yachting magazine "Seilas" No. 1/1979
Designer Bo Johnson; Built by Johnson Båtar AB, Sweden.
Hull and deck:
LOA 7,95 m; LWL 7,20m; Beam 2,95m; Draft 1,45m; Displacement 2,500kg; Keel ballast 990kg; Freeboard 0,95m; Coachroof profile 0,52m.
Sails and riging:
Over all height 12m; Mainsail 13,9m2; Genoa I 25,6m2; Genua II 19,5m2; Genua III 13,4m2; Spinnaker 57,8m2.
Max headroom 1,90m; headroom at the galley 1,80m; Headroom in the forepeak 1,62m; Saloon (width x length) 1,82 x 2,80 m (5,1m2); Berths in the forepeak 1,25 x 2,07m; Starnoard berth/settee 1,93 x 0,70m; Port berth/settee 1,93 x 1,08m; Starboard berth aft 2,34 x 0,68m; Cockpit 1,83 x 1,50m (2,7m2).
LYS-number is 1,02.
The rigging is clearly on the small side, and a slightly taller mast would've been more satisfactory.
So far I very satisfied with her, especially with the relatively large saloon and her behavior in pretty rough sea. Planning a four-week trip this summer, however, I believe we'll make a lot of new and adjusted assessments considering both performance and comfort. I may return with such comments.
