The Contessa 26 is an attractive easy to sail very popular boat and known as an ocean cruiser. My boat. Red Admiral, has had many extras added in order to make it practical to sail short handed, these include in boom reefing, a side shift bow thruster; also other improvements include, a new sea toilet, a sink and water tank, an electric auto bilge pump, new VHF radio with cockpit extension and a spray hood added and she has a Raymarine autohelm. The previous owner, who sailed her across the Atlantic in the Jester Challenge, had the bulkhead reinforced with a kevlar and halyard fittings strengthened. There is also self steering gear although I’ve never used this. Red Admiral has been serviced annually at the marina and anti-fouled. I bought her in 2011 and the survey showed the presence of moisture in the hull, not uncommon in a boat of this age, but no blisters have appeared to date. A surveyor will be able to give appropriate advice.The boat has been taken out of the water and is viewable at Premier Marina, Fort Cumberland Road, Southsea, Portsmouth PO4 9RJ, UK
