Overview

1978 Contessa 32 'Bellerophon' is a lovely example of these classic yachts, bought by the current owners in 2020, she has been well maintained with servicing and annual hull work all carried out plus the hull below waterline was stripped back, filled, faired and epoxied over the last winter. New sails in 2017 plus additional suit of spares. A full compliment of electronics, Lister Petter engine and everything you need onboard for your next adventure. Nothing would stop you from sailing her straight off to a new home.

Currently afloat in Dartmouth, Devon, viewings are by appointment 6 days a week through the Dartmouth office.
