"TAGHAIRM" is a solid Van de Stadt classic built by Tylers in 1980.
Only two loving owners. She is a wonderful boat, safe, seakindly and swift, sails like a dream.
Superb singlehander or wonderful weekender.
"Taghairm" is a seaworthy family cruiser with classic lines and long keel profile which delivers exceptional performance, easy handling, and a light helm even in the most challenging of conditions. Often compared to the Contessa 26, the Invicta offers improved accomodation, greater headroom and moulded headlinings whilst still retaining much of the Folkboat inspired charm.

The INVICTA 26 was designed by E. G. Van d Stadt & moulded by theTyler Boat Building Company of Tonbridge in Kent.
Hulls were moulded to LLoyds specification in Tonbridge then supplied to various yards for fitting out.
The Invicta 26 is a Folkboat type design & is classed as an offshore cruiser racer.
Maintainence is kept to the minimum by using a GRP hull & deck with all stainless steel fittings, external woodwork is limited to the tiller, cabin entrance & handrails mounted on the cabin roof.
The Mk2 version of the Invicta featured a flush deck, increased headroom in the cabin and many improved features.
Construction of the cabin roof is two mouldings - an inner & an outer, these are bonded together, the join can be seen around the forward hatch & main windows.
Hull laminations vary from 3/4" in the lower part of the hull to around 1/4" in the cockpit area, however at stress points the thickness is increased especially in the deck & cockpit corners
