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 a genuine cruiser with racer performance when you want it. They were also the first production boat to be built with a resin injection moulding process - see further details in the construction section above. This particular boat has a non standard keel with a shallower draft of 1.49m compared to the standard draft of 1.93m.
The yacht is well equipped it had a new engine in 2004 that has only completed 350 hours. The instrumentation is extensive and includes a chart plotter and radar. Recent upgrades also include a calorifier for pressurised hot water & new water tanks. She was also extensively rewired and new saloon lighting fitted.
