Broker's Comments

The condition of this Countess shows that she is a professionally built craft. She was bought with the aim of being used for sail training so has been part coded.

She is a nice and roomy boat and will suit anyone wanting to cruise and spend time on board. She has new carpets throughout and is in good condition generally.

The rigging was replaced about 4 years ago and all the other work carried out on her is documented. This is a great looking bilge keeler and is ready for the coming season.

These boat details are subject to contract.
