||This is an amazing boat in absolutely turn key condition. Every system on the boat has been either upgraded to new or fully serviced recently. Overall, this boat represents high quality USA construction which has stood the test of time. Only the highest quality materials were used in building the boat which originally worked as a high end charter vessel in Alaskan waters. It was then purchased and motored via the Panama canal to Florida where I purchased her and shipped her to Australia. I have owned Contessa and lived aboard with my family for four years now. We are selling to purchase a larger vessel. We love this boat and she will make an excellent boat for her next owner. Contact for more photos. Can be delivered to owner and full hand over and instruction to assist new owners to make purchase and ownership a pleasant experience.|
