About this Contessa 26


New onto brokerage at a fantastic price, Southampton Dry Stack Boat Sales are delighted to offer this 26" Sailing yacht from the world renowned British builder Contessa (Jeremy Rogers Ltd build) This is an opportunity to own a very good example of this highly sought after yacht.

Fitted with a Yanmar 1GM10 diesel inboard offering renowned reliability and economy with smooth power delivery. "Rin Ginn" is ready for new owners and will not disappoint. Only available on brokerage due to the current owner upsizing after happy ownership. This 1GM10 benefits from the extra installation of Speed-seal easy slider making maintenance including impeller changes simple.

This 1975 example crafted by the specialist builder Jeremy Rogers, is surprisingly roomy for her size and as expected of a Contessa yacht, sails well and capably in a variety of conditions. The Contessa is known to hold excellent sea keeping capabilities and to be very well build as stated in review by Michael McGoldrick "The Contessa 26 ... is clearly robust and overbuilt, and it has to rate as one of the very best ocean-going production boats in its size category"

The brands pedigree and heritage in the South Coast of the United Kingdom stretches worldwide and back over 50 years and is clear in the build quality, design and styling. Practicality and optimum use of space is apparent throughout, with the main saloon offering versatility complete with berths, comprehensive galley plus chart table and contained heads.

Rin Ginn has been well taken care of throughout current ownership, with all stern gear being overhauled with new shaft bearing and stern gland completed in 2020.
