This is another of the rare Yankee Yachts built sailboats. The lines are the same as the other two Robert Finch designs, the Yankee 26, and the Yankee 28. This model was designed for trailer sailing with a stub keel with an internal centerboard, and removable spade rudder. This boat is not built as well as the other Yankee's, but is still one of the best designed and built trailerables I have found which can be launced on almost any lake. Like the 26, there are very few of these out there, and I would love to hear from anyone who has heard of, or sailed one. This is NOT a Dolphin - entirely different animal.

Pros: Solid!!!!
Cons: Hull speed was slower than full keel.

This is a rare boat to find in the Great Lakes. My family owned one from 1974 until 1979 and sailed it on Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron. I sailed in all kinds of weather, and it was so solid. I spent 6 hours out on the Bay in 50 mile an hour winds with 10'+ seas one day with just the storm jib up and some power from the outboard. Many boats would have been pounded to pieces, but not the Yankee. I recently learned that our boat was seen in a storage yard here in Midland, MI. Not there now. I would have bought it!
