The Colgate 26 is a very good, all purpose boat that can be used for training, cruising, racing, night sailing or camping on the island. It is most impressive that the Colgate 26 participates in many national and international regattas, and can tolerate heavy weather.

...We have a winning combination in the Colgate 26. We have a stable, roomy platform for instruction at all levels, a sporty racer that appeals to the college sailor, and a boat that meets the high safety expectations of the Waterfront Staff at Maine Maritime Academy.
Eric Jergenson, Sailing MasterMaine Maritime, Castine, ME
I really do love my boat. It has very little weather helm and is great in the big seas that you can get on Lake Michigan. I feel very safe knowing that it has positive flotation and will not sink. We predominantly day sail, and the cockpit is great. You can really spread out...

The Colgate 26 is easy to rig and lets you get underway in minutes, saving valuable practice time. New York Maritime sailors particularly enjoy having the opportunity to not only improve their boat handling and boat speed, but also hone their tactics while match racing during practice.

I cannot tell you how many boats I looked at prior to my decision. There is truly nothing in the marketplace today which compares to the C26. I found what I was looking for in this boat. And I get the added bonus of a stable good looking vessel at a price that screams VALUE!”

The Colgate 26 is the sailboat of choice for the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, the Maine Maritime Academy, and over 300 individuals around the world.
Positive foam floatation makes it stable, safe and unsinkable. Even in heavy weather, the Colgate 26 is easy to control and can be sailed comfortably with just the jib or main alone.
The Colgate 26 is Maintenance free and built to last – it has strong fiberglass, no wood except for the tiller, and equipped the best fittings (most from Harken).
