Description: The Columbia C26 MK I has a keel-hung rudder which does a lot to protect the propeller and has tiller steering which greatly decreases the amount of stress on critical components. And typical of the mid 60’s, the hull is overbuilt.

This Columbia C26 MK I cabin top has been completely rebuilt to the highest standards with foam coring replacing the original wood. In addition to the new cabin top, additional side stays have been added along with a removable inner forestay bringing the center of gravity closer to the centerline when flying the storm sail.

This Columbia C26 MK I has been upgraded with quality Blue Sea, Paneltronics, ProMariner, Marinco electrical systems. Aircraft style storage along the cabin top, new fuel tank, all new hoses, standing rigging... the works. Everything noted above has been done.

The Columbia C26 MK I fits in smaller slips although she has as much room as many 30 footers, it can still fit in slips which are generally many hundreds of dollars less to rent. This saving in slip fees will offset the higher original purchase price in a few years.

Columbia C26 MK I modified with additional stays heavier bracing throughout creates an extremely stiff boat capable of some seriously scary weather. The boat will take far more punishment than most seasoned crews can handle.

This Columbia C26 MK I is the complete package new 12 volt and AC wiring with 30 amp service and a charging system meant to handle a starter and two house batteries. Double the storage of any other C26 in existence, great galley, 1000 watt stereo and a bilge as clean as the day it was launched. Thousands of hours have been spent bringing this beauty in to the 21st century. You needn’t do anything but sail it.

NOTE: some images shown were taken prior to upgrades being installed.

I have a brochure if you'd like more information on this great classic boat.
