Broker's Comments

This Jeremy Rogers Contessa 32 comes with pedigree and an enviable reputation for seaworthiness and long distance cruising and you have just stumbled on a great example! Lots of upgrading, for instance, new toe rails, sprayhood, upholstery, heads, windows and new engine, exhaust and stainless fuel tank and shock horror... an in date liferaft!!! The vessel still requires a little work and the Ticktack log requires fitting but by and large she is a treasure!
