Information on Commodore sailboat
 
Hi, I have a 1982 Commodore 26'' in need of repair. During winter storage the inside flooded -- what a mess. I need to replace interior cushions and do some general maintenance. I am really in need of any information on the boat that I can get. The previous owners are of no help here.... I have looked on the web for information on the manufacturer and can''t seem to find anything. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Look on BoatSearch here on SailNet. There is a Commodore 26 (1986) for sale by owner with a posted evening phone #. Maybe that person can give you info on the boat.

Information on Commodore sailboat
 
Hi. I have a 1982 Commodore 26 myself, and wondered if you ever got any useful info. As with you, the prior owners of my boat were not forthcoming with information. I did find out that the manufacturer(Commodore Yachts)had folded some years ago. They apparently didn''t make/sell too many boats. I did try to contact some of the names in Cruising World''s "Another Opinion" list ($5.00) but didn''t get any response. If you get any feedback from other owners, maybe it would be worthwhile to form an owners'' association...

Commodore
 
Hi Henry,

I myself just purchased a Commodore 26 and am having trouble locating any history or information on the boat. Did you find anything of interest since this post?

Thanks!

Commodore 26
 
I have owned a Commodore 26 (also known as the Commodore T-26...the T stands for trailerable) for about 5 years. I have been doing a comprehensive refit and know pretty much about every inch of this little cruiser. I am into the final major project of dealing with the concrete and steel ballast that Commodore used. The boat was originally designed for Columbia Sailboats by Alan Payne (Australian 12 Meter designer). He designed the Columbia T-23 and this T-26 along with several additional models for Columbia. Commodore bought the molds form Columbia after they folded and modernized the rig and greatly upgraded the interior. If you do a search for Columbia T-26 you will see the similarities. Anyway, I love the design for spending long periods of time in the Bahamas yet trail to to distant waters now that I am getting closer to retirement. Let me know what questions you may have.

Sail Dimensions for Commodore 26
 
@Sailorman321

My commodore is a Fractional Rig, is that the upgrade to the sails you mention? My mainsail is also a cut down sail from a 33' (I am guessing because it has 33 on the side of the sail) and does not fully shape properly as it should apparently. Do you happen to have the sail dimensions for the main and foresail? I am eventually going to want to replace both and it would be nice to have it handy for the sailmaker.

Thanks,

Tony

Commodore 26
 
Sorry Progresst, haven't been on in a while. Yes, Commodore changed the rig to a fractional from the masthead that Columbia had. I'm not sure of your sail number but probably the production number of your boat. I think that was pretty close to the end of the manufacturing run. Your sails are most likely original and therefore have lost their shape. I have a lot of info, the original brochure, some of the design drawings etc for the boat. Will see about getting them to you.

Hello all. I am new to the sailing community, but have been lurking for a while. I recently acquired an '81 Commodore T-26, and will be spending the next year or so fixing her up before I get her on the water. Looks like some good info around here, and I'll probably be picking some of your brains.

Thanks, Mike.
