The Contessa 32 needs no introduction to most sailors. It has superb sea keeping and handling characteristics which has made this boat an all time classic.
This Contessa 32 has been kept ashore over winter for the last 19 years and the owner has maintained her. The owner visited the boat in October 2011, made sure all was in order, started the engine and made good for winter. The sprayhood has been removed and a de-humidifier has been turned on. She would, however, benefit from a fresh coat of paint on the topsides.
These boat details are subject to contract.
