Broker's Comments

This is as nice a Contessa 26 as I've seen in a long time. The owners have looked after her well and lavished money and attention on her. She has been re-engined and boasts a modern chart plotter in the cockpit. The sails, including a spinnaker, are all North: crisp and fresh. All the cockpit cloth is bright and firm. If you want an above-average pocket cruiser, this Contessa 26 may be exactly what you're looking for.
