‘South Haze’, Contessa 32

Contessa 32, Built in 1980. The benchmark sailing yacht built by Jeremy Rogers in Lymington, UK to David Sadler/ Rogers design. 'South Haze' is considered one of the best examples of the Contessa 32, with a racing record that is second to none. This is no ordinary Contessa 32. She has been optimised for performance, with a major refit undertaken by her original builder in 2000. There are not many cups she has not won, and she has been thoroughly sorted. South Haze was completely re-vamped by Jeremy Rogers in 2000 at a cost of approximately £20,000.00 (invoice available upon request).

‘Hot Chocolate’, Contessa 26

Hot Chocolate is a great project for someone who wants to make a Contessa 26 truly their own. With many essential jobs already ticked off the list what remains is the fitting of the interior to the new owners specification.
Maggie May, Sadler 25 for sale

‘Maggie May’, Sadler 25

‘Maggie May’ is a bilge keel Sadler 25 built in 1981, Drawing appx 1m10. She sails really well and is solid; a Sadler after all. Everything is of an age but works as it should. She is a tourer, not a racer. Having been moored in Lymington for a winter without much attention, (apart from a Karcher-cleaned hull in April), she needs a tidy up and paint and could use a new UV strip on the Genoa.
