Construction

Construction GRP
Underwater profile Fin
Finish Paint finish

The Contessa 34 OOD (Off shore One Design) was designed to sail as an ocean racer, but as a one design it was also built with comfort in mind down below. The Contessa 34OOD has an injection moulded GRP hull. The glassfibre mat was laid up between two moulds, along with all the interior hull stiffening and reinforcements. The resin is then vacuum pumped through the mould. This construction method resulted in a very strong hull all the stiffening such as ribs, frames and stringers become an integral part of the boats moulded hull.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Boathsed Medway are delighted to present this very good example of the Contessa 34 OOD.
The owner has spared no expense in equipping this vessel with everything she needs to go & do some serious sailing/Racing. If you want a boat that appears to be ready for the season then this is certainly worth your attention, the owner is more then willing to take the new owner out & show them what she can do & after many years of owning this vessel he is only selling due to already purchasing something bigger.
Viewing Highly Recommended!
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
