Broker's Comments

Contessa 26’s are well known and highly regarded sailing yachts, many have competed in the single handed transatlantic race and round Britain races as well as several circumnavigations. So what ever type of sailing you’re up for, these boats will never fail to please. They have style, elegance and handle really well.

She had a new Beta Marine engine fitted in 2001 and has only done 240 hrs, the navigation instruments are modern and tidy, there is roller furling on the genoa and a new lazy jack system on the main to make short handed sailing easy.

Down below would take a little work to put everything back together as it is in storage as is most of the rig.

She also comes with the option to keeping on the mooring in Mylor.

These boat details are subject to contract.
