Broker's Comments

Apologies first of all for the condition of this Contessa, she has been ashore for 12 years now and would have benefitted from a wash down prior to photographing but sometimes we have to list as we see.
So, here's a 1974 Contessa 26, well proven and much loved by all who sail them. She has a new Beta 10hp engine with less than 1 hours use and is showing no serious hull or deck issues but a survey is as usual recommended.
Looking past the superficial grime, a pretty boat starts to appear, the little details in the build quality that sadly you simply don't see nowadays. I hope you can see past the layer of grime and see the potential waiting to be revealed, thanks for looking! Steve
