Welcome to the Contessa 32 Class Association

When Jeremy Rogers and David Sadler created their first sketches of a modest, affordable, sailing boat, little did they suspect that their offspring would, almost half a century later, still be turning heads, and sailing around the world, let alone still being produced. Their design, like so many great designs, proves the axiom: if it looks right, it probably is right.

Good looks, rugged strength, and excellent sailing qualities co-exist in the Contessa as in few other yachts before or since. Few other craft have ever inspired such affection amongst past and present owners and crew.

We hope that this site goes some way to explain why a sailing boat first constructed in 1970 continues to be in such new-build demand and hold such a place in the heart of the rightly-critical, hard-to-impress, sailing community.
