Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Steven of Boatshed Falmouth. Register or log in to see 45 more photos of this boat. This is quite simply one of the best Contessa 32 I have ever seen. It wouldn't be wrong to describe her as being meticulously maintained by a very careful owner. She is extensively equipped and clearly has been constantly upgraded. The Contessa 32 is well know for its classic David Sadler lines and are ever popular cruiser racers. She represents exceptional value at this asking price. These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Disclaimer The particulars detailed herein are intended to give a fair description of the vessel but their accuracy cannot be guaranteed. These particulars are not and shall not form part of any offer or contract for the sale of the vessel and are supplied on the understanding that all negotiations shall be through Boatshed, who act as agents for the vendor. The vendor is not selling in the course of a business unless otherwise stated. The prospective purchaser is strongly recommended to check the particulars and, where considered appropriate, at his own expense, to employ qualified agents to carry out structural and/or mechanical and/or electrical surveys and inspections in order to assess the actual condition of the vessel before purchase.
