Overview

Dart Dash is a sloop rigged, cruiser racing yacht built by Mike Slack of Lowestoft in 1990.
With excellent sailing qualities and a good pedigree the Contessa 32 is a solidly constructed and well engineered boat. This fine example is presented with a white hull, light blue decks and a deceptively large cockpit with teak seating. The main saloon, furnished in blue draylon, has a wraparound settee to port with a teak table that converts into a double berth and seating to starboard providing a single berth. Forward is her v-berth with an infill to create a double berth and aft of the navigation station to starboard is a single berth. Her Volvo Penta MD2020 19HP diesel engine was new in 2000 and FeatherStream propellor new in 2011.
This is an opportunity to own a truly iconic and admired sailing yacht.
Viewing is available 7 days a week by appointment.
