The Tattoo 26 is as maintenance-free as it is possible for a boat to be.
The rigging is of anodized aluminum and stainless steel. The fiberglass hull and deck require only an occasional waxing. The complete lack of exterior woodwork, means that there is no time-consuming wood to maintain or refinish.
Resale value on the Tattoo 26 will remain high in relation to the value of boats stored in the water. Because of the solid fiberglass laminates used in the construction process, these boats seem to have no age limit. Free of rusting and refinishing, many of the boats, after ten years, will still look as good as the day they left the factory.
