The Contessa 32 is a classic cruiser-racer, whose combination of speed and seaworthiness was proved in the ill-fated 1979 Fastnet Race. This 1993 example is one of the approximately dozen built by Mike Slack after Jeremy Rogers ceased series production in 1982 - and is thus much newer than the vast majority of Contessas. This yacht is very well equipped, is in full commission, and is now for sale only because of an owner's health issues.

The Contessa 32 was designed by David Sadler in 1971, and rapidly became very popular, both as a fast cruiser, and as a one design racing class. Series production by Jeremy Rogers Ltd. continued until 1982, by which time the cost of production building in the UK to the Contessa level of quality was becoming uneconomic. Jeremy Rogers then started "reconditioning" older yachts.
Between the late 80s and early 90s when Jeremy Rogers was no longer producing Contessa 32s a small number of boats were built by other builders, mostly by Mike Slack. This 1993 yacht is one of these. These hulls have minor structural changes (improvements) on the original series boats.
In 1996 Rogers once again started limited production, of what is now a very expensive 32-footer at about £190,000 plus VAT. The few latest Rogers Contessa 32s have similar minor alterations to the original 1970/80s construction spec.
