A very well equipped and cared for example of the classic Contessa 32, available for viewing ashore in Cowes.. A highly successful and popular cruiser racer from the yard of Jeremy Rogers Yachts where her propeller, cutlass bearing and shaft have recently been renewed. With elegant lines, unrivalled stability and legendary performance and safety characteristics, this yacht would make an excellent family cruiser. Many Contessa 32`s are still actively raced offshore and the class has its own inshore race series in the Solent.
Getting to Cowes is easier than you think – park your car at the Town Quay Red Funnel terminal http://www.redfunnel.co.uk/travel-connections/road-connections/finding-us-in-southampton/ , sit back and enjoy the high-speed 25 minute crossing and we’ll meet you at the Cowes terminal which is just 300 yards from our office. If the boat is further afield than Cowes we can drive you there and back. Please call to make an appointment.Inventory
