Contessa 26, 1973 (lying Chichester)
For sale is Contessa Julia, a 1973 build from Jeremy Rogers with a self draining cockpit. This would be our 7th season with her, but ‘unfortunately’ life with a toddler forces sale. Currently on the hard at Sparkes Marina, Chichester Harbour. She has been well suited to the coastal adventures and weekends away that we’ve asked of her, I’m sure she would take you as far as you seek. Julia was purchased by me in April 2018, out of Howth YC, Dublin. I sailed her down the Irish coast to Kilmore Quay and then over to Falmouth where she spent the first season around the... read more

The Contessa 26 was designed in 1965 by David Sadler and introduced at the London Boat Show in 1966 by Jeremy Rogers of Lymington, England.
