1998 Colgate 26 Sloop Sailboat in Fleming Island, Florida

Stock #236477

If you are looking for a great boat to learn sailing OR just looking for a nimble, safe, and efficient daysailer, it will be tough to find a better option than this 1998 Colgate 26.

Back in 2002, John Kretschmer wrote in Sailing Magazine,

"When Steve Colgate, Olympic sailor and founder of Offshore Sailing School, decided to update his vast fleet of Solings in 1996, he knew just what he wanted. After 35 years of sailing and teaching, Colgate was looking for a durable, safe boat that could be easily handled by novices but also offered the prospect of great performance. Most importantly, the boat had to be affordable. Colgate was convinced that if properly executed this new boat would not only be successful as a trainer but also appeal to the broader sailing public."

According to Kretschmer, the Colgate 26 is the culmination of that objective, and he summarizes his review by stating, "The Colgate 26 is appealing on many levels. It's safe, affordable, easy to maintain, and very handsome. However, its nimble and spirited performance is clearly its best feature."

This particular Colgate 26 has been lovingly maintained and cared for and this owner of 18 years is heartbroken to get rid of her, but his health just won't permit him to use her anymore.

The owner likes to sail her "light", so much of her sail inventory and other accessories like V-berth cushions, quarter berth cushions, and ice chest is not shown in the accompanying pictures. There is a complete inventory/equipment list included in the DOCS for this listing. Ask your broker to provide that seller-supplied list to you.

Sail inventory includes a North Sails main w/2 reefs, a working jib, and a gennaker (incl turtle bag). Additional sails included are a UK Sails main w/1reef, working jib, 155% genoa, and symmetrical spinnaker.

When not under sail the boat is powered by a 3.5HP Nissan 2-stroke outboard with approximately 200 hours (estimated) on it.

If day sailing for just plain fun is what your about you are going to love this 1998 Colgate. POP Yachts has sold over 10,000 vessels and this is only the sixth or seventh Colgate 26 we've ever had listed. Do not wait!! This one won't last long!!
