Possibly the best cruiser racer of all time, the Contessa 32 was first designed in 1970 and is still being built today. Over 750 of these hulls have been built and they have proven themselves for both racing and seaworthiness in all conditions. A Contessa 32 was the only yacht in the small boat class to finish the disastrous 1979 Fastnet race. Do you want a trustworthy and versatile yacht that is just as at home racing round the cans as she is on speedy offshore passages? Come rain or shine, in calm or rough seas, do you want to treat yourself to some serious sailing? Look no further. This yacht has been owned and enjoyed by her present owners for the past 18 years. Clean, uncluttered and with a lot of her original equipment, she is ready to take on new owners keen to join the merry band of Contessa enthusiasts. Yes, this second to none design has an almost cult following. Wth pretty lines, a generous sail wardrobe, hank on foresails and a slab reefing main, the deck is easy to move around and she has a deep, safe cockpit. Down below, this vessel is practical and homely with a traditional light wood finish and good quality upholstery throughout. There are useful long grab rails, a full sized, fwd facing Nav table with pilot quarter berth behind, a good sized galley and lots of storage. This time proven design, which looks good and feels good, provides a great sailing yacht for all seasons. VAT Paid with proof of status. These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
