1973 Contessa 26ft for sale. Yanmar 1GM10 engine. Priced to sell quickly, as I've bought a new boat. I've had her 5 years, and done plenty of maintenance so she should be pretty trouble-free sailing. She's a tough boat with a thick-hull and a heavy keel, and feels safe in strong winds. I've sailed her round the Isle of Man twice, anchored lots with no problems.
