This is my contessa 26She was purchased by me 2 1/2 years ago. She was in a poor state having been abandoned on her mooring for 3 years after her owner died. ( close inspection showed that she was well cared for before this )I removed the engine and rebuilt it. I gave her a complete new electrical system. The hull was stripped back and found to be in good condition. It was prepared, then painted with epiphanes 2 pack. The undersides were faired and primed / antifouled. The woodwork was sanded and oiled and looked great.The windows were all removed and rebedded. Standing rigging was inspected and found to be good. All running rigging replaced. I have sailed her extensively since re launch. She is a joy to sail. These boats are great passagemakers. Very safe and stable at sea. Very forgiving and love a blow. During the round the island in 2018, we were very pleased that we were ahead of several other co26 before the wind died.mainsail, genoa and 2 spinnakers included2 spinnaker polesElectricals.. 2 batteries, solar panel with controller.

She is very useable as is, but this summer I planned to tidy up and refresh the interior, which has been untouched by me and could do with a lick of paint.Anchor with chain and warp. Fenders, a locker full of warps all included.I ordered a new mainsheet traveller system and new genoa tracks and cars a few weeks ago, before I decided to sell. These will be included in the sale, fitted if I possibly can. interior photos will be added this week. I have not taken any before, and the decision to sell has only been made today. I adore this boat, but my wife has now got the sailing bug, and she is demanding a few home comforts that the co26 can’t give. Lying afloat in Portsmouth harbour£6000 open to offers
