The Contessa 28 offers an excellent blend of confidence inspiring sailing performance and useful accommodation, offering up to 6 berths in 2 cabins. Less well known than the earlier Contessa 32 and 26, the 28 was a more modern with an improved interior fit out, often considered an earlier rival to the Sadler 29 and still featuring moulded headlinings. 'Tigley' is a very good example of her class fitted with a 1998 Volvo MD2020 18hp engine and is offered for sale at a highly competitive price.
