Broker's Comments

The Contessa 33 is what the Channel Handicap Rule was based on. A true cruiser racer, she was specifically designed as a replacement for the classic and much loved Contessa 32. Her initial success was immediately felt and she is still a winner today, yet she retains the vice free handling of her predecessor and has all the interior comforts desired in a dedicated cruising yacht.
