About Us

The Contessa 26 Community Forum

We invite all Contessa 26 owners and their crews to join the Contessa 26 Community Forum.

Managed by “Contessa Owners for Contessa Owners”, the Community Forum serves as a “virtual yacht club” for participants and offers a bulletin-board-style discussion forum that is organized around various related topics that are searchable. Registration is required to participate fully, but many forum topics can be accessed by guests. 

Your participation will contribute to preserving the rich tradition of the Contessa 26 on the Great Lakes and beyond. Our goal is to provide a safe harbour for all and to promote an appreciation of this Good Old Boat.

Contessa 26 Community Forum members benefit from having access to a technical knowledge base, which is especially important as the boats in our fleet continue to age as gracefully as possible!

Membership is free-of-charge and open to open to all Contessa 26 owners (past, present, and future).
