1985 Contessa 33   £14,000
The contessa 33 are well proven and a great design of that generation of yacht. A product of Rob Humphries. There are numerous articles about this design, highlighting their versatility, whether, cruising, racing or short-handed sailing. Sadly the owner is retiring from sailing, which is why he is offering her for sale. She has all the essentials and just requires a bit more TLC to have her looking at her best again, which is why she has been priced accordingly. These boat details are subject to contract.

1971 Contessa 26   £7,300
Contessa 26 sailing yacht for sale. The Contessa 26 could be considered the first classic GRP boat. With very much traditional lines she was sufficiently nimble to win the first round the UK race on handicap (and the smallest boat in the fleet) while successfully completing two single-handed transatlantic races, finishing 14th of 61 in 1974. Class is timeless and Tish has those timeless, classy looks that make her very much of the period, while benefitting from a newer (2004) Nanni engine. Sails renewed/updated in 2006, along with standing rigging (2006). In very good order for a boat of ... read more

1969 Contessa 26   £7,650
Who fancies owning and bringing a classic, well proven and pretty little racer cruiser back to her former glory? When Jeremy Rogers and David Sadler got their heads together and organised the building of the GRP Contessa 26, they produced a classic small racer/cruiser capable of sailing inshore, offshore or across the oceans and around the globe. Although this example has sat safely on a yard unused for a considerable time and is in need of some t.l.c. and updating to get her back on the water, there is a pretty good package here for a budding enthusiast. This vessel had a refit back in 2006... read more

1972 Contessa 26   £9,250
A true Classic small yacht with a fully justified reputation for seaworthiness. designed by Jeremy Rogers along the lines of the Folkboat but with improved accommodation. These boats have sucessfully completed circumnavigations and have also won major races. Thanks to the current owner this boat is equipped for racing with all new Saunders sails purchased in 2018 and used only once! Our first impressions are that there has been a lot of time/money spent on the exterior of this boat and her racing equipment and some minor attention to her interior would make her a worthy "true classic".
