Vripack has introduced its new PTS 26, a semi-planing classic flare-bowed composite yacht.
Inspired by the Swedish designer C.G. Pettersson, the 26-footer offers a beam of 8 feet, 6 inches along with a wooden forecastle and low after-deck.
The PTS 26 features a polyester hull with Flexiteek and mahogany decks. It is available with a 144-hp Steyr engine with the low-emission Hybrid Drive System to allow for a more environmentally conscious ride, according to the manufacturer.
A new deckhouse layout produces more space and standing height, and provides the possibility for a galley down below and a wet cell with head. The lounge area at the stern can be transformed into a double berth.
The PTS 26 retails for just under $80,000.
