Walton on the Naze Essex UK
Contessa 26 sailing yacht for sale. The Contessa 26 could be considered the first classic GRP boat. With very much traditional lines she was sufficiently nimble to win the first round the UK race on handicap (and the smallest boat in the fleet) while successfully completing two single-handed transatlantic races, finishing 14th of 61 in 1974. Class is timeless and Tish has those timeless, classy looks that make her very much of the period, while benefitting from a newer (2004) Nanni engine. Sails renewed/updated in 2006, along with standing rigging (2006).
In very good order for a boat of her age - she won the Haven Series Britannia Trophy in 1993 - she is well worth a look if you want to enjoy speedy passage making in a boat that is at home in all conditions.
Now ashore at Titchmarsh Marina, call now to make an appointment to view.
