About this Contessa 26


Remarks :

Jeremy Rogers 1969  CONTESSA 26 (No. 26) "Genesee".

Blue and white stripes curtains, smart beige berth cushions, Cusimax single burner cooker, washing up bowl, water carrier, navy cockpit cushions, ensign, boathook, rubber inflatable dinghy, etc etc. Her history is she was updated in 2013 by her former owners, during the restoration the hull was completely stripped back and epoxied and professionally painted, the interior was also restored at that time and the new mast and boom. She is well known in the Contessa fleet and has completed the Round the Island Race coming 35th overall.  Although she can be raced she is also set up for single handed cruising. This is a beautifully maintained and up graded Contessa 26, one of the nicest I have seen. I thoroughly recommend early viewing of this pretty Classic Yacht. 2014 and 2019 good surveys.
