Broker's Comments

This Contessa 28 Sailing boat is a lovely cruising yacht with a proven design. Contessa's have great sea keeping qualities.
This particular example is still in a bit of a protected wintry state. But I am sure that she would come up lovely with a bit of TLC.

These boat details are subject to contract.
