Contessa 26 “NeIIie” Sail No. 255 Built 1972
" Nellie"benefits from an extensive refit over recent years with no expense spared on getting her in the condition she now enjoys. This is not a "project boat" as per many others on the market at the moment.
She is ready to voyage and is a truly wonderful and unique vessel.
She is the rare "B" layout, with the galley on the portside of the companion way.
She has a bespoke mahogany interior.
Now fitted with single line reefing so she can be completely controlled from the cockpit.
This and the wind vane steering make single handed sailing very much easier.
She represents a unique opportunity and one of the finest of her class on the water.
