Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Contessa 28 Sailing boat is a lovely cruising yacht with a proven design. Contessa's have great sea keeping qualities and this one benefits from having her rigging renewed in 2008 and she has a fantastic sails wardrobe too. The interior has been looked after as well making her hard to fault. She is ideally suited to a family or for single handed sailing. You could have fun racing at club level with all those sails to choose from.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
