Contessa 32 - £27,500

The Contessa 32 is a 9.75 metre (32 ft) fibreglass monohull sailing yacht, designed in 1970 by David Sadler. Over 750 hulls were built. The Contessa 32 is one of the most successful cruiser racers of the last 30 years. With her long fin keel and skeg-mounted rudder, she's a solid sea-boat that will see you through all seasons of offshore sailing. The Contessa 32 also performs well in races, and as a one-design racing class is administered by an active owner's association.

'Viking' is a beautiful looking boat. Her hull number is 390.

She has just had a complete refit with new upholstery throughout. All the internal woodwork has been stripped back and revarnished with International Satin. New cutlass bearings and a new rudder have been fitted and all sea cocks stripped down and serviced. The spray hood has been fitted with new windows and new acrylic deck hatches fitted. The fresh water system has been replaced throughout together with a genuine Contessa tank liner.

In the cockpit, all the seating has been replaced in teak together with new teak toe and taff rails. A new teak instrument console has also been fitted in the cockpit for the NASA instruments. The tiller has also been refurbished.

All the standing rigging has been cleaned and inspected and new clevis pins fitted throughout.

The engine has been fully overhauled with new fluids, new filters, new belts, a new impeller and a reconditioned alternator.

The hull is in excellent condition. It has had full osmosis treatment, and all the old antifoul has been scraped off and four coats of Primacon applied in preparation for the new owner to apply antifoul before she goes in the water.
