Fractionally rigged boats

Does anyone know offhand which are the most popular fractionally rigged boats between 26 -30 ft. I know San juan, jboats, pearson (flyer model), Hunter and other manufactured using this rig, just need a complete list.

thanks

I am not sure that one can give you a complete list as fractional rigged boats are pretty common in this size range. Several fractional rigged designs or companies that made frac''s in that range that come to mind would include the Tripp 26, Laser 28, Albin, Seasprite, Tartan, Santana, Ericson, and Kirby 30. There must be literally 50 to a 100 fractionally rigged models in that size range.

Can I ask why you are looking for a ''complete list''?

Jeff

I prefer the handling traits of the fractional rig for a LI Sound boat that will not be in heavy seas. I didn''t know ericson made a fractional rig. thanks

There are reasons to go with a fractional rig, but a lot of people on LIS go for masthead rigs because the lack of wind cuts into the performance of fractional-sized spinnakers. Though a tad bigger than you outlined, you may want to consider a Tartan 10.

I looked at the tartan and thought it was just a few feet to big. I liked the flyer, but didn''t find any in decent condition.
