The Contessa 27 was a replacement model for the Contessa 28, the moulds and design of the Contessa 27 were purchased by MG Yachts and thereafter sold as the MGC27. A fast, modern-styled small cruiser, this boat was originally built with a lifting keel with internal ballast but has been converted to a fin keel. The Contessa 27’s have an excellent reputation for sailing performance and handling.
We look forward to organising your viewing and answering any questions you may have.
