Who fancies owning and bringing a classic, well proven and pretty little racer cruiser back to her former glory?
When Jeremy Rogers and David Sadler got their heads together and organised the building of the GRP Contessa 26, they produced a classic small racer/cruiser capable of sailing inshore, offshore or across the oceans and around the globe.
Although this example has sat safely on a yard unused for a considerable time and is in need of some t.l.c. and updating to get her back on the water, there is a pretty good package here for a budding enthusiast.
This vessel had a refit back in 2006/7 which included a hull re-epoxy, a new 13.5 Beta engine, new standing rigging including a new boom and a new sea toilet that has never been used. Dingy and life jackets are included.
