Interior joinery work is a combination of solid hardwood, veneer faced plywood and solid slatted style lining panels, all in Teak. To say the finish is superb, is an understatement. A generous and comfortable aft cabin has a full size double, there is plenty of storage throughout, she has a big and well laid out galley with twin sinks, big fridge and veg box. "U" shaped saloon settee, single settee opposite with pilot berth above, heads with full standing headroom and a forecabin which is perfectly designed. It is almost impossible to fault the boat. Also has fitted blown air Webasto heating.

Broker's Comments

The Dawn Class 39 was originally built as the Contessa 38, after being modified in the transom area the new design was put into custom production for the more discerning yachtsman. The quality of build and fitting is simply stunning. She is a sea boat of the highest calibre with looks and practicality to match. No expense has been spared in her preparation or presentation. Viewing is strongly recommended as the pictures and words cannot impart the true nature of this fine yacht. See "more photos" to view 39 internal and external photos of this vessel. Photographs, analysis and comments by Mike de Graaf of Boatshed Wales.
