1285 viewsThis may be the closest anybody can come to our beloved Contessa 26's. With its unique Van der Stadt blister hatch and fine lines, the Excalibur 36 actually precedes the CO26's production by 5 years. I wonder if Jeremy Rogers and David Sadler used this particular vessel as one of the inspirations for the eventual Contessa 26? Any thoughts?
