The Colgate 26 has been designed to offer speed and more importantly stability on the waves. She has an efficient sail plan, and being easy to handle makes her a perfect first sailboat or sailing training, and whilst also used in racing they offer lots of room as a family sailboat too.
Ashwater is in pristine condition, the 4 berth cabin is spotless, and she has full fitted cushions inside and out which look as new. Rigging and sails are all in good condition, and her exterior and hull have been professionally cared for throughout ownership.
Extremely popular in the US, the Colgate 26 was designed by Olympic and America Cup Sailor Steve Colgate for use in his sailing school. There is a wealth of information on the features of the Colgate 26 here, if you are unfamiliar with the boat. There is also a Youtube channel from the makers which display sailing tips using the 26 and more.
The model has room for plenty of sailors, a high boom and sunken cockpit to make manoeuvres easier, the ergonomic tiller is a breeze to use and a low transom allows easy access either to step-aboard or from the water.
We highly recommend viewings and she is currently on her berth in Torquay, Devon.

Manufacturer Provided Description
By combining exciting performance with safety and durability at exceptional value, Steve Colgate and naval architect Jim Taylor created the 25'8" Colgate 26 to put the fun back into sailing. A spacious 11'6" cockpit provides ample room for six adults. Below you'll find storage for both daysailing and weekending. The computer-designed underbody creates stability and exceptional performance in both light and heavy air. Durable fiberglass construction minimizes upkeep. For safety, the COLGATE 26 is virtually unsinkable, even if holed, and is completely self-bailing. Rigid cockpit railings provide security and comfort. The COLGATE 26 was named Cruising World Magazine�??s Boat of the Year in 1997 and was recently selected for training by the U.S. Naval academy, the UK Sailing Academy and the Maine Maritime Academy. Test-sail the C-26 at any of Offshore Sailing School�??s 7 national locations. The effective rudder allows excellent maneuverability and easy steerage in even the most extreme conditions. Durable fiberglass construction minimizes upkeep, and the deck-to-hull joint is through-bolted and covered by a custom extruded, hard rubber guard. Extra reinforcement has been added to the keel / hull junction as well as to all other high impact areas. The use of CoreCell foam adds additional strength to the deck and cockpit.
