Persephone is a rare opportunity to buy one of the ‘new’ Contesssa 32s.

Since first launching in 2012 she has been lightly used by the owner and is a truly fine example of this iconic classic racer/cruiser.

Persephone is a top spec boat with many extras including a comprehensive suite of sails for cruising and racing.

She has been maintained by Jeremy Rogers Ltd and is in very good condition.
