Broker's Comments

The design for this boat was originally for the Contessa 27, but MG Yachts subsequently bought it. She is not a new boat, but thanks to the caring maintenance of her current owners, she has aged very well. If properly cared for, she is bound to offer many more great sailing miles to whoever buys her.
