Broker's Comments

This lady is SERIOULSY priced to sell - if you're after this type of boat, look no further! Examine the market and you won't find any better value - she MUST go, along with her fantastic inventory! I really wouldn't miss this one...

LOOK:

Really recent standing rigging!
Serviced/maintained!
Sails galore - including racing!
Cleaned and valeted!

She's recently back in the water after maintenance: a new saildrive gaiter is fitted - bang on schedule - along with fresh anti-fouling, hull polish, full engine service new anodes and a full valet.

Originally sold as the Contessa 27, the moulds and design were purchased by MG Yachts and thereafter sold as the MGC27.

This boat is a superb example of this fast, modern-styled sailing cruiser having the advantage of the much sought-after lifting keel and an excellent reputation for sailing performance and handling.

Take all of these and couple with the facts that she comes loaded with cruising and laminate racing sails and has recently had her standing rigging replaced, she represents serious value. Even more so when you consider that, though currently set up for short-handed cruising, she is very easily and quickly set up as a club racer, with an extra pair of self-tailing winches and fantastic TackTick Race Master instruments.

Fantastic for a family for a few hours, a weekend or longer - even a race, this boat is versatile in every way - father and son, husband and wife - whichever way, she is perfect for easy sailing or tougher, more serious stuff!
