Broker's Comments

This Contessa 26 was purchased with the intention of sailing her to New Zealand. Plans have changed and now she is on the market and requires some work to get her ready to go to sea. Un-engined, she is offered at a very modest price to allow for an engine installation. A recent survey found her hull and deck to be structurally sound, and only a short list of relatively minor matters to be attended to. This is a great opportunity to complete this vessel and obtain a lovely Contessa 26.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price will be considered.
