Suitable for two people cruising that donít care about a lot of room.

They are tiny everywhere even on deck and in the cockpit where the boom is quite low.

I think the have like 5'4' head room inside

I can go to the mast just about on my boat still standing and I'm about 6' or used to be.

The Contessa 26 though is a very nice looking boat on the water and several have circumnavigated

This couple cruised in one for a few years.



This Skipper is quite the character also but he did do a nice job on the boat.



Then there's the Big Oceans Guy and his Contessa 26

Does anyone really buy from this thread? Anyway, it looks like a marina in Oriental, North Carolina is clearing out the riff raff. Go to CL - eastern NC to see a variety of vessels at rock bottom prices.

Re: FREE, or close to free!

Don't know how many folks end up buying from these, but they are interesting to look at, and see where prices are going. That San Juan 28 for $750 could be a real deal. I saw a couple there that probably should be in the "under $30K" thread, like that Tartan 34C asking $9500, the Cape Dory 27 and the Hunter Cherubini all caught my eye too.

That San Juan has been on there for years, they keep renewing the ad without any additional info or photos. Always the same two photos. I'm pretty sure I emailed them for more pics a couple summers ago, never got a reply. Something fishy with that one.

Re: FREE, or close to free!

If something came up that was close to where I live, and fit my criteria I would buy, but most of the boats in here are back East or too far south of Vancouver BC. The gas to transport them here would be ridiculous.

Looking for a boat that sleeps 4, is trailerable, and comes with, and will impress the family, not scare them off sailing forever.


The Mac 26 seems perfect for this, along with a few others.

No but a very nice sturdy boat, that certainly can be occasionally transported by trailer.

Being mentioned in this thread, have to ask, how much?

This is all an experiment for me at this point, so not planning on mooring a boat, so it will come out after every day/weekend/week sail.

A Macgregor 26 is pretty scary unless you are just going to use it in a lake or something.

They are so lightly built.

Re: FREE, or close to free!

Trade a couple LFP banks in good condition in exchange for delivery to the East Coast?

I have a good trailer (I hope still) waiting for me to pick up in SC, but no suitable vehicle.

Re: FREE, or close to free!

If I could arrange care for my dependant family members I'd just come out and live on the mooring 8-)

What is the total monthly nut to keep it out there a while?
