26′ 2017 Rockport Marine “Islander”
Eloise, a 26’ Rockport Marine “Islander” built in 2017, was designed for beach picnics, cocktail cruising, and interisland travel from the owner’s home in the Bahamas. She offers a rare combination: the uncompromising good looks, attention to detail and finish of a custom boat and, with her simple systems spec, Yamaha power, and raw teak and 2-part paint finish scheme, the reliability and ease of maintenance of an outboard powered production boat.
Eloise’s moderate deadrise, round bilge hull comes from the Bahamian Albury runabouts and rides beautifully in a wide range of conditions. She has the sheer line of a Maine lobster skiff; enough freeboard and flare up forward for a dry ride, a touch of tumblehome back aft for style.
Power comes from a 300 HP Yamaha that delivers a top speed above 40, and paired with her 100 gal. fuel capacity, an impressive range. Her open transom and swim ladder allow easy boarding from the dock or water. She has a teak deck, full canvas package, and beautiful weathered custom bronze hardware throughout.
Eloise is offered for sale in excellent condition and is currently on Harbour Island in the Bahamas, ready for showings.
