Not currently; looked at one years ago and was quite taken with it but the seller wasn't that interested in negotiating. (Not the one in the photo.)

Ok, thanks for the reply. My son and I are refurbishing one and wondered who else has one. I think eight were built before bankruptcy set in.

There is one in Gibsons on the hard at G.Harris Diesel. Don't know who owns it now but I did know the P.O., at least to talk to.

I like them not that that matters.

There's one afloat in Silva Bay, she gets lightly used more or less year round. Name might be Pelican(?).

If all goes according to plan, I will be purchasing a 1974 Yar 26 this Saturday. It's in pretty good shape. I'm most concerned about the original Nissan/Chrysler CN4-33 diesel inboard. From what I gather, there are not many parts available for it at all. I'm going to have a marine diesel tech inspect it.

You can find it by searching Yachtworld for Yar.

If anyone's still watching this thread, I bought the Yar that is listed on Yachtworld. They have been trying to sell it for a year as part of an estate, and the price dropped from $25k to $10k, and the final price was under $4k!!

The engine checked out pretty much perfect. I will have to drop some money on some delamination under the water line, but it does not look bad. Everything works, and she just needs to be cleaned up. She was well maintained up until the year that she sat unsold.

Currently named 'Karakia', which Google tells me is the Maori word for prayer. Maori cultural appropriation being super out of fashion right now, especially in Seattle, plus the fact the name does nothing for me, I'm probably going to be renaming her after the hull repair.

I love this boat. So weird. This thing has a weighted keel, a lil 50hp diesel, a nice wood trawler-looking interior, a full cockpit hardtop with full canvas. It's perfect for putting (slowly) around the Puget Sound in any weather. I could do the inside passage in this if I want to. Why did no one else want her? Maybe I'm missing something.. Lol.

If anyone is interested I can update as the boat is worked on.

Congratulations! It sounds like you got a heck of a deal on a heck of an old boat, especially with the engine in great shape. I love the old fiberglass boats with a wood interior. Please keep us updated as you fix her up.

JeremyZ,
Can you post the YW link?
I'd like a better look at that boat.
That engine may last for years. Lots of good used sailboat engines at very good prices to replace the Chrysler if ther's a need. I think you got a scream'in deal. Hope I do better when the time comes when I sell my boat.

The listing is still available at:

This is an example I found online of a well-restored Yar:

That hull is exactly the same as a 26 foot Permacraft.they built it as a trawlet and as a motor sailor, i used to own one great little ship.
