I have a 1970 Columbia C26 MKII Sailboat that I'm looking to sell. This boat has been an amazing sailboat for me, but I have not been able to use it for the last 3 years and feel that it is time that I move on from my sailboat ownership days. As it is a 51 year old boat, it is not in perfect condition. I'm flexible on price. I'd love for this to go to a great owner. I honestly have gotten 3 lifetimes worth of memories and happiness out of this boat.

Over the years, it has been well taken care of and has been an amazing treasure to play with in the Detroit River and on Lake St. Clair. This boat has served me well - I hung out in the marina working on it, studying, doing wood work projects, painting it, etc... I have enjoyed countless hours sailing and living the boat life.

She is currently shrink wrapped in the yard at Kean's Marina downtown. Let me know if you want to discuss further or see photos. The sailboat has a cockpit that would seat 4 persons. Interior cabin space has a small table, a toilet and a v-berth in the forward area for sleeping.

I painted it every year with the copper anti-fouling paint. In 2015, I painted the deck with marine deck paint to match the original coloring. Waxed every year. Used 3M buffing compound every other year to help keep the fiberglass in good condition.

I have the following items:
1970 Columbia C26 MKII (26 foot 6 inches)
7? sails (multiple mains, multiple jibs and a spinnaker)
5HP outboard Honda motor
Lots of parts for planned projects
Interior cushions (re-upholstered 15 years ago by my mom!)
Wind scoop to funnel air into the cabin while sleeping or hanging out
Flare gun
Built in Kenwood cockpit speakers
