Hei Matau is for sale. I am selling because my crew has mutinied over the lack of a "proper" head and galley. I personally love the spartan accommodations of the Tiki 26, but sailing without my crew is too lonely. I am also starting a business, and do not anticipate having the time to sail her as often as she deserves. She is located in Bennington, VT. The price is $15,000 USD and is a deal, so please only serious offers. She is in great shape and ready to sail on your next epic adventure. Did I mention that she did 14.7 knots one glorious day between Padanarum and Cuttyhunk?

Please see my page for some photos. Others upon request.

She was built to plan #305, and finished in 2005. Here is the current equipment list:
