Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner.
See "more photos" to view 40 internal and external photos of this vessel. This Contessa 33 comes with all the equipment you need for some good cross channel cruising / racing, but she would benefit from some TLC to bring her up to her former glory. A great cruiser/racer for the money. Photographs, analysis and comments by Peter Delbridge of Boatshed Hamble.
