    Contessa - 28 for sale

    Sailing BoatsCruisersContessaModel 28

    Veritas is a much loved Contessa 28 in very good working order. Designed by Doug Peterson and built in 1979 by Jeremy Rodgers in Lymington she is comfortable, fast and seaworthy.


    She has a recently serviced 3 cylinder Yanmar 3gm30 engine (newer European model) with a complete set of spares ready for the next service. Her 2-bladed folding propeller means there is no drag when sailing and is less likely to foul. There are 2 batteries, two gas bottles and her fuel tank holds 10 gallons. She has new roller furling gear, a new spray hood and a new sail cover. There are two genoa’s, one main (battened with 2 reefing points) and two spinnakers with spinnaker pole. All sails are serviceable.

    She is 8.5 metres long, 2.9 metres wide and draws 1.5 metres. She has an encapsulated fin keel with lead ballast. Her mast is deck stepped (mast head sloop) and she has a spade rudder.

    Her electronics include a Kelvin vhf radio, an fm radio, 12 volt charging point, Garmin 551 chart plotter, Garmin 128 gps, Raymarine tiller pilot (plus a spare one), depth sounder and 2 bilge pumps. In her self draining anchor locker, there is a cqr anchor with 20 metres of chain and 30 metres of warp.

    Down below she has 6 berths (two doubles and 2 singles), a folding table and chart table. She has a Blake’s sea toilet and hand basin with manual faucet, a hanging locke. Her galley boasts a Flavel cooker with 2 gas rings and a grill, a cool box, sink, drainer and manual faucet. There are 2 fire extinguishers and a horseshoe buoy. The flexible water container holds 50 litres.

    Veritas has only had 3 owners since new and has been very well looked after. She is used on a regular basis and I am parting with her very reluctantly. She is available to view on a pontooned mud berth in Queenborough.
