Broker Remarks

This Contessa 32 is the famous Jeremy Rodgers built yacht, she has many pleasing qualities. The Contessa 32 is at home as a cruiser but can also be sailed as a racer due to her sleek lines and performance, the Contessa 32 was one of the few boats that stood up to conditions during the 1979 Fastnet race.
Anubis is in good order and anybody looking for a small yacht that packs a punch, at a reasonable cost, then they should look no further!
