    The Nash 26 first made its appearance in 1977, and while it may not be as numerous as other entry-level models, more and more of these boats have been finding their way on the used market in recent years. It is a relatively large 26 footer with a nice interior layout which includes the maximum in the way of cruising amenities for a boat in this size range. Despite the priority placed on interior space, it still has acceptable proportions for a cruising boat, although some later Nash 26s appear to have been built with a slightly boxy-looking cabin.
