A Countess 33 for 5000 Euros!


This is a restoration project. The previous owner died before he could finish the refit of the the interior.The hull is in good order, and was painted two years ago but not used since. The BMC 38hp motor is in very good order. Mast and rigging are also in good order. Apart from a genoa (missing) the sails are there.

The present owner reckons the boat could be back in the water within a few months.

On the hard at Olhao, about ten miles from Faro. Further details from peter.j.engels@gmail.com
