The Contessa 32 of which 750 were built, is widely known and admired by generations of yachtsmen. They have achieved almost a cult status by virtue of their seaworthy design ,robust build and the being the only yacht in the small boat class of the 1979 Fastnet race to finish.
Tantris is an example of good ownership in which a regular and conscientious programme of maintenance and renewals have ensured a seaworthy fast cruiser.
The hull has been Awlgrip finished and which greatly enhances her appearance.
In the previous ownership £20,000 was spent, epoxy; windows; Awlgrip hull; engine , new cooker......
In this ownership since 2015 a further £19,000 improving and upgrading, including new mast and rigging, Jenniker and S/s retractable bowsprit.
