Broker's Comments

The classic Contessa 26 with her flowing lines that have been well documented ever since her launch in the late 60's.
This example will give you a great seaworthy vessel with some lovely original features benefiting from some modern updates.
A nice double vee berth forward and two singles in the saloon and a safe cockpit.
The sails are in great shape and there is a hardly used Spinnaker below.
Call me if you require any further details or to arrange an early viewing.
