The Contessa 32 and Contessa 26 are two classic fibreglass sailing yachts designed by David Sadler in cooperation with Jeremy Rogers. Both yachts are excellent sea boats with an extreme stability curve and are a popular club race boat with both classes enjoying an active race programme. This includes Cowes Week, National Championships and the Round the Island Race.


A demonstration of her sea worthiness was sadly demonstrated in the 1979 Fastnet Race when the Contessa 32 was the only boat to finish in the smaller boat class.

The Contessa 26 has completed circumnavigations of the world, Trans Atlantic races, Round Britain Races and has been the weapon of choice for those looking to win the coveted Round the Island Race Gold Roman Bowl.


Although the accommodation is limited when compared to modern boats the Contessa more than makes up for this with her ability to withstand rough seas. Both the Contessa 26 and 32 are beautiful and graceful looking boats and, in the age of mass production boats, hark back to bygone age and richly deserve the accolade of ‘timeless classic’
