-I bought the boat last June from Barry Alten but I’m afraid I’ve gotten too old to cruise her. She’s on the hard in Oriental , NC. I’m sanding the exterior teak and hopingto have a new awning made for her.

I’m asking the same price I paid for her….$17,900.00 as I believe this is the fair price for a Contessa of this quality. I hate bargaining….it makes no sense to me.
