Introduced in 1982, the Contessa 34 was launched as a fast cruising version of the OOD34. The issues that were associated with the OOD34 were thoroughly worked through and sorted out by Contessa yachts for the Contessa 34. A longer cast iron keel and considerably more hull weight were combined with the legendary Contessa build quality to produce a sturdy, well-built cruising yacht.

This particular yacht, lying here in Cornwall, has been upgraded and maintained over recent years. The interior layout provides good accommodation and is well appointed with blue upholstery, and carpets. With a fore cabin, aft cabin and a spacious saloon, coupled with good quality craftsmanship, including the recent addition of a renewed saloon table.

This is a rare opportunity to secure this Contessa 34 at a rather good price and offers subject to survey will be more than welcome. In addition,there is a bonus offer. Topsides will professionally applied in your choice of color by the team at the Boatyard, or if you are happy with existing finish in Hempel Britannia Blue deduct £ 3400 from asking price, be quick.!

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
