Contessa 35, Built 1976 Was £24,950 Now £18,950
"Jachoby" is a superb example of the outstanding Contessa 35 as designed by Doug Peterson and produced by the well-regarded Jeremy Rogers Boat Yard in the United Kingdom in the mid-1970's. One of the best-looking and performing dual-purpose "cruiser-racer" yachts of that era, the Naval Architect and the Builder pedigrees have made the well-built Contessa 35 on of the most sought-after yachts of her type over the years. When refitted to the standards as embodied by "Jachoby", such an opportunity to acquire an exceptional classic sailing yacht that's truly second-to-none presents itself only rarely.
