This Fresh Water Colgate 26 offers a superior handling and sailing boat that due to the 40% ballast ratio and the resulting stability  makes her capable of  being sailed with 6 people on board yet is easily sailed with one blowing 5 knots or 25 knots.

The flag ship design for the Off Shore Sailing School and "THE"  boat used by the US NAVAL Academy , the USCG Academy  & the US Merchant Marine Academy.

When introduced the Colgate won Cruising World honors as "BOAT OF THE YEAR"  in the "Pocket Cruising Division".   The reasons were many but include the boat's stability, the well balanced helm, the open transom, the positive flotation causing her to be "Unsinkable", the small cuddy with sit up headroom, and the way better than average sailing performance.  

This particular Colgate includes a virtually new 3.5 Mercury 4 stroke and a custom over built tandem trailer.  The beautiful Navy hull, maybe needing some buffing, still shows well and is quite distinctive.

Essentially two suits of sails (the recent ones were New in  2013) offers even more value as you will not have to go purchase new sails to be fleet competitive right out of the box.  The 165 PHRF rating is roughly 6 seconds a mile faster than the wonderful  J 24.    Worth noting that the owner of the Colgate sailed J 24's for 20 years and then moved forward to the Colgate.

Located in New Mexico, please contact us for making connection with the owner who will gladly meet you at the boat and help you on your  way to where ever this Colgate 26 may lead you.
