About this Contessa 32


This Jeremy Rogers built Contessa 32 was built in 1979 and commissioned the following year.
Her classic shape and encapsulated keel make for fantastic sailing performance.
'Contessa Maria' has benefitted from from a number of upgrades including a re engine in 2018, new mainsail in 2019, genoa in 2021 and Pacific Windpilot in 2021.
With updated upholstery down below and recent standing rigging replacement, she is ready to go sailing for next season.
She is ashore at Lymington Yacht Haven and available for viewings, please contact our Falmouth office.
