Best Mid-Sized Sailboat Value
Ready to Sail Away
The Colgate 26 is absolutely the best value you’ll find for a daysailer and racing keelboat in the 22’ to 30’ range. Construction starts when three orders are received and generally takes an average of ten weeks from start to finish.
Sail Away Payments and Custom Options
A new Colgate 26 sailboats starts at $87,500. Currently when you place your order, a deposit of one-third of the net due, is necessary to confirm the order. One-third of the net is due when the deck and keel are installed. The balance of the base boat and options is due upon completion at the factory in Hubert, North Carolina. See our Colgate 26 Complete Sail Away Package
and what’s included.
Custom hull colors (which as you can see can be gorgeous), can be done by the builder, as well as barrier coats and bottom paints. Custom hull color and bottom paint are not included in the sail-away Colgate 26 sailboat price.
You have two delivery options. Order a trailer (optional) and we’ll have the boat on the trailer ready for you to come pick up your boat yourself. Or ask us to arrange for a boat delivery service to bring it to the yard of your choice. It can be on a trailer or not when delivered by truck. Delivery by us is, of course, an extra charge, as is the cost of a trailer.
U.S. Sailboat Show Display Boat
The very lowest Colgate 26 sailboat price you can get is available if you order a Colgate 26 for Offshore Sailing School to display in its slip at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, MD each October. You can go for just the standard white hull version, or a custom color like this beautiful navy blue that was ordered for display in the 2013 show.
Rig It and Set Sail!
When the boat arrives, all you need do is rig the mast and put the sails on – which generally can be done by two or three people. A handbook is included when the boat is delivered, or it can be emailed in advance so you are ready to jump into action when the boat arrives.
