Owner's Comments

I have cruised Misty between the River Deben and Brighton. Contessa 26's are well known for their excellent sea keeping and some have crossed Oceans and there is at least one known circumnavigation.

I am selling now because my sailing has taken a different direction and I have bought a dinghy.
