Sailing BoatsRacing BoatsContessaModel 32

The Contessa 32 is a modern classic. Since first launching from the Rogers yard in 1971 she has become widely recognised as the most popular racer cruiser ever - beautiful to look at, a dream to sail and with a formidable reputation for seaworthiness. Jenda has been given a lot of attention over the last few years with many notable features; reconditioned engine 2020, electric fridge, Mastervolt charger, 600W Invertor, New service battery 2020, New Domestic 2021, Harken furler, New Barton mainsheet track, Spinlock jammers, new running rigging 2021 leading back to the cockpit, gas check certificate July 2021 and lots more. With a focus on both the sailing and comfort details of the boat, this is a yacht that will look after you in harbour and just as importantly out on the water.
