Jeremy Rogers set up in business in 1961, and within ten years had one of the most successful boat manufacturing companies in Britain.
Production included Contessa yachts ranging in size from the traditional 26 to the Doug Peterson-designed Grand Prix 35s, 39s and 43s, many of which were exported to a worldwide market eager for his innovative and beautifully finished yachts.
The two most popular Contessa yachts were the sprightly Contessa 26 and the hugely successful Contessa 32. Today at the yard the much-loved Contessa 32 is still being built, adding to the 650 or so already sailing all over the world. Jeremy Rogers Limited is also the sole supplier of original Contessa accessories and spares.
