This is a great clean example of the famous Contessa 26. Previously only sailed on fresh water until June 2010 when I spent the money to sail her single handed across oceans. New upsized standing rigging 2010, including running backstays and a removable inner forestay for extra strength. Over $10,000 spent in the last year, she has sailed the Caribbean and ready to go further.
