This may be the closest anybody can come to our beloved Contessa 26's. With its unique Van der Stadt blister hatch and fine lines, the Excalibur 36 actually precedes the CO26's production by 5 years. I wonder if Jeremy Rogers and David Sadler used this particular vessel as one of the inspirations for the eventual Contessa 26? Any thoughts?

That's a pretty nice looking boat, really. At 36 feet, it doesn't seem much larger than my Alberg 29 in terms of usable space. I'd blame the excessively long aft overhang and very fine lines. But boy, is it pretty.
