Lots of Boat for the Money!! Ready For the Next Adventure!! Includes a Suzuki 6 HP 4-Stroke OB!!

There may not be a better deal on a sailboat anywhere else on the web. Aside from needing a paint job, this 1979 C&C Encounter 26 is in great shape for its age.

This Encounter 26 is similar to the original C&C 26, however with a shorter keel, shorter rig, and a heavier displacement. This makes this sloop a great rig for running over to the Bahamas...and this one knows the way! It's made the trip many times.

Below there is a good-sized salon with a folding table, a head forward of the salon, and a V-berth in the peak.

The galley has an Origo 2-burner stainless steel unpressurized alcohol stove, a stainless steel sink with both fresh and raw water pumps, and a new Frigo 12V refrigerator.

Above there is a fully-battened loose-footed main, a Harken main traveler, and a boom with end-boom sheeting, all new in 2020. This allowed the traveler to be moved from the companionway to the aft end of the cockpit. This change permitted the installation of a new continuous Dodger/Bimini in 2020. There is also a mainsail cover, new in 2020.

Additionally, there is a 110% jib with Selden roller furler, a Gennaker, and a storm trysail. Also, since 2020, there is a new boom vang, and all new sheets and halyards with professionally spliced whipped ends and reeving loops. The halyards are all run to the cockpit with new rope clutches.

Ground tackle includes a Rocna 10kg (22#) anchor with 170' of 5/16 HT chain and a Fortress 7 anchor with 30' of chain and 150' of rode. These are managed by a manual Lofrans windlass.

Electric generation/storage include 280 watts of solar panels with Bluetooth controller, 3 recent lead acid Group 9 batteries and a recent lead acid starting battery, a recent Guest 2 bank battery charger, and new DC panels. There is also a 30 amp shore power with cord and a 50 amp-30 amp converter.

Navigation aids include a Garmin Echomap UHD 94sv 9" plotter/sonar with an external transducer
mounted on the hull, a Garmin wind indicator, a Ritchie 6" compass, a Raymarine ST2000+ tiller pilot, and a Standard Horizon GX2000 VHF radio with AIS & DSC, all new in 2020. There is also a Boss stereo and a masthead LED tricolor/anchor light, both added in 2020.

When the boat is not under sail it is powered by a Yanmar 8HP single-cylinder diesel engine. The engine starts and runs good, but it is believed to be original and the hours are unknown.

There's a lot of capable sailboat here for the money. Don't wait...it won't last long!!
