Topic: FOR SALE: JJT Contessa 26, Ready to Cruise $12,500USD


It’s time for my wife and I to go back to work so we’re selling our JJT Contessa 26 in the South Pacific.

She’s being actively cruised and is ready to go over the horizon.  Pack a bag, grab the sunscreen, and you are ready to go.   We’re asking $12,500USD and will entertain any serious offer in USD or AUD.  The best way to contact me is at

Crazy Love was built in Canada by JJ Taylor in 1984.  We have sailed from San Diego to Hawaii and through the South Pacific.  We’re currently cruising in Fiji, but she’s for sale and available for delivery in Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, or Southern Queensland.  She’s fully outfitted for cruising:
