WAHINE LIFE­STYLE 26

Soundings - - Classics -

The Wahine Life­style 26 is a sporty racer/week­ender that packs a ton of func­tion­al­ity into a small pack­age. Out­side, she has the look of a pre­mium racer/cruiser with ac­com­mo­da­tions to suit a fam­ily of four on long week­ends and short cruis­ing va­ca­tions.

The open tran­som has a drop-down swim plat­form. The cock­pit, side decks and fore­deck are cov­ered in a grippy, gray-and-white deck­ing ma­te­rial, and blue LEDs light the deck spa­ces. Blacked-out rail­ing around the perime­ter and a carbon fiber bowsprit give the Life­style 26 a sporty look.

In­side is an L-shaped gal­ley with cook­top, sink and mi­crowave. Far­ther for­ward is a V-shaped dinette that con­verts to a berth with drop-in cush­ions. A sprawl­ing quar­ter berth is abaft the gal­ley near the en­closed head/shower, which is to port of the com­pan­ion­way. Folks with­out kids can use the area for dogs or stowage. There’s plenty of room for both.
