SOLD: 1981 JJ Taylor Contessa 26

I am selling my JJ Taylor Contessa 26. She sleeps 4, has a head, stove, icebox and sink with fresh water hold. Powered by an inboard German Farymann diesel she is very economical under power. She’s extremely stable under sail and has a solid feel even with the gunnels submerged. You will find her an excellent choice as a family day sailer for both local and distance sails. She comes with an Autohelm, VHF, spare sails, new upholstery, new dodger, new sail covers and Comox moorage. Please call 250 792-4810 or email me for a showing.
