BACKGROUND: From Article by Steve Knauth
The Sisu 26 ? the name comes from Norse mythology ? was designed along lobster boat lines by Royal Lowell, of the multigenerational Lowell family of Maine designers. Their influence over Down East commercial and pleasure boat design and construction is still felt today. Lowell-designed boats over the years include models under the nameplates Bruno-Stillman, Cape Dory, Duffy, Jarvis Newman and Wesmac.
Production of the 26 began in the late 1970s and peaked in the 1990s, according to Jamie Lowell, nephew of the designer. He estimates that between 250 and 300 of the 26s were built by Portsmouth Boat Works in Dover, N.H., and they were popular as both work and pleasure boats. The smaller Royal Lowell-designed Sisu 22 also proved a winner, according to Jamie Lowell, outselling the 26 over the years.
Though the original builder has gone out of business, the Sisu 26 is still available today from the Lowell Brothers yard in Maine as new construction. And there?s an updated version of the boat launching this spring called the Lowell 26. Phone: (207) 846-4878. www.lowellbrothers.com
