Description

1978 Contessa 32 'Bellerophon' is a lovely example of these classic yachts, bought by the current owners in 2020, she has been well maintained with servicing and annual hull work all carried out plus the hull below waterline was stripped back, filled, faired and epoxied over the last winter. New sails in 2017 plus additional suit of spares. A full compliment of electronics, Lister Petter engine and everything you need onboard for your next adventure. Nothing would stop you from sailing her straight off to a new home.

Broker comments

Since hull 1 was built at the beginning of the 1970s the Contessa 32 has proved to be one of the most popular British designs ever. Over 700 have been built and 'Bellerophon' is a wonderful 32 with miles under her belt and owners who have made sure she is kept as a great example of the design. An excellent family cruiser there is also a strong racing pedigree, the 32 fleet still garners large numbers of boats particularly in the Solent and they are one of the few yacht classes to have their own start at Cowes Week (45 years and counting). Whilst 'Bellerophon' has been set up for a more leisurely pace her racing form is still easily to hand for those who like to head 'round the cans'. *Please note the mooring could be available to an interested party if required
