Designed by Steve Colgate in conjunction with naval architect Jim Taylor the Colgate 26 is built by Precision Boat Works,
The Colgate 26 is one the best all around sail boats on the market. While it is a great family day sailor, and superior trainer that is in use by the Naval and Coast Guard Academies, as well as Norfolk Naval Station and Maine Maritime Academy. The Colgate brings home the silver. Even with a set 162 PHRF on the Southern Chesapeake. The Colgate's are winning and placing in races all over the Bay.
The boat does well in all wind speeds. With a 4.5' keel, rigid stainless life lines, a powerful rudder, and a stable ride this boat is the perfect family day sailor,
This boat comes with cushion packages for the exterior and interior. It has a virgin porta potty, and even a small sink with a fresh water supply.
Whether you want an outing with your family or your racing buddies, the Colgate 26 will deliver. There is a Harken roller furler, and self-tailing winches. The sails are by North. You will have a main, 100 Jib, 155 Jib (No penalty on Southern Chesapeake), spinnaker and pole (Which I have never flown.).

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 Boat of the Year in 1997 The effective rudder allows excellent maneuverability and easy steerage in even the most extreme conditions.

The use of CoreCell foam adds additional strength to the deck and cockpit.
