Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Contessa 34 Offshore One Design. Doug Peterson drew up a hull design that was clean, free of distortions and genuinely fast. However as many owners will agree these are comfortable cruisers as well. Stepping on board this example on a fine, bright sunny day it was apparent that this yacht has been used and enjoyed by the past and current owners who are looking to go up in size. She would benefit from some updating but she is a Contessa and can still turn on some speed and as the current owners wrote “… sails superbly and is a very quick boat.” She will shortly be lifted and subject to acceptable offers the vendors will include winter storage and re-launch in March 2013. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
