    The Kelt 7.6 is a French design which was first built in France, and then under licence in Ontario, Canada. It won the very prestigious "boat of the year" award at the 1980 Paris Boat Show. The Kelt successfully squeezed a lot of living space, including an aft head and a real chart table, in seaworthy and modern looking 25 footer. Because these boats were built in the mid-1980s, the Kelt is one of the newer 25 footer that can be found on the Canadian used market. It should be noted that some Kelt 7.6s were built with a motor well for an outboard in lieu of a transom bracket.
