 The Contessa 26 is widely regarded as one of the best ocean-going boats in its size range; robust and overly built. The Contessa 26 was chosen by both Tania Aebi and Brian Caldwell for their separate attempts to become the youngest person to complete a single handed circumnavigation. Thomas Hockne did two single-handed circumnavigation in a Contessa 26. The first between 1982 and 1985 and the second between 1987 and 1998 both started and ended in Helsingborg Sweden via the Panama Canal and the Cape of Good Hope.

The origin and nature of her design means she has a narrow beam and limited elbow room down below. She has a v-berth forward, port and starboard settees and port and starboard quarter berths. The cockpit is long, narrow, comfortable and secure. There is no sliding hatch over the companionway, a feature which makes the cabin top much stronger and better able to withstand a pounding in an offshore storm. INTUITION has gone through an extensive refit over $50,000 spent !?!  Thank you for your time and consideration.
