Boat Reviews By Owners

1979 -- 25' 1" COLUMBIA 7.6m

Model: Widebody Supercruiser

Cockpit: Good-sized cockpit w/ small foot well to keep boat safe. Helm visibility is very good. High, COMFORTABLE combings to keep you dry and sailing for hours on end with no back discomfort - even without any cusions! The cockpit has 2 LARGE sail lockers that you can actually stand inside (about 5' deep) GREAT for storage!

Cabin: TONS of storage space in this beamy beauty. Sleeps 4 very comfortably in the cabin with room for 2 more in the cockpit. Nice layout with table that folds up against the bulkhead to give you more usable space. Storage under all seats. Finsihed in teak.

Construction: Exceptionally well-built boat. If you haven't looked seriously at a Columbia you don't know what you are miising! Anchor locker on deck to keep things tidy above.

Handling: Handles well on all points of sail. Tracks like it is on rails, yet tacks nicely. Finger tip steering on the tiller - requires MINIMAL pressure from your finger to stay the course. Although primarily a coastal cruiser she is very seaworthy and capable.

Engine Room: Powered by a 9.9 Johnson "Sailmaster" as an option. The space uised for the inboard is now used for a large fresh-water tank and food storage.

General Comments: I think the Columbia 7.6m is one of the VERY BEST all-around sail boats EVER built under 26 feet. She does all things well!
