MG Contessa 27 Family cruiser or club racer Whatever you want her to be.

Posted in: Lymington | By: lymington

Alma is a nicely presented Mg Contessa 27 built in 1996 by Northshore yachts. The Rob Humphreys design gives an easily handled cruising yacht with great performance and the innovative Tandem wing keel results in less heeling and faster performance. With the added advantage of a shallow draft taking Alma into places that other yachts cannot reach.
The MGC 27 comes from a great pedigree. Marine Glass bought the rights to the Ron Humphreys designed Contessa 27 and rebranded it as the Marine Glass Contessa 27 (MGC 27)
Over 158 Contessa 27 and MGC 27 were built by various yards and I am pleased to say that Alma was built by one of the best ,Northshore Yachts, still famous for producing quality yachts.
Alma has a modern layout and sparkling performance. The helm is beautifully balanced and the self -tacking jib makes her a doddle to sail shorthanded. Accommodation is excellent with 5/6 berths and standing headroom. Alma has a practical Galley, Separate Heads and a well maintained 9HP Volvo diesel engine.
This MGC27 has a full sail inventory including genoa, storm jib, cruising chute, and spinnaker. Alma has been lightly used and although she has not been raced with her sail wardrobe and folding prop could definitely hold her own at Club racing.
