About the Colgate 26

The Family Sport Boat, for day sailing, round-the-buoy racing, trailering and training. Designed by Steve Colgate and naval architect Jim Taylor, Colgate 26 has been the official training vessel of the US Naval and Coast Guard Academies. The Colgate 26 is also the “Navy 26”, used for the naval academy’s Colgate racing fleet. Steve insisted that the Colgate 26 meet Offshore Sailing School’s insurance requirements and recommendations. “Those criteria would meet or far exceed any established for an individual or fleet owner interested in buying this fun, fast, and safe boat,” he said. The Colgate 26 has been sailed by some of the top racers in the world.
