    Contessa 34 OOD

    Rochester / Hamble, Hampshire

    NAZCA II   Contessa 34 OOD.   Extensively adapted for lighthanded cruising and racing Currently berthed on Hamble, but happy to deliver her anywhere in UK /North  European waters with new owner I have already purchased a new yacht for a circumnavigation and selling her for this reasin  See more pictures and videos at Nazca II was built in 1982 by Contessa yachts as one  of the Doug Petersen designed OOD 34 offshore racing fleet, I believe a total of about 90 were made that are now spread across the world. She has had two owners from new, the original owner whom mainly  raced her in the Solent and myself since 1999.  The original sail plan is designed for a crew of five or more, I raced Nazca successfully with full crew from 1999 up to aprox 2008 in both RORC and EAORA race series and then started to adapt her for short handed sailing. In addition to the running rigging all being repositioned plus roller headsail she also has a Monitor wind vane and we have successfully competed in and completed  the following two handed races,   Fastnet race in 2009 , AZAB in 2011 and four Triangle races in 2012 – 4 – 6 and 8, as well as delivery and qualifying passages. This is in addition to  regular extended cruises to Holland, Denmark and a round UK cruise in 2017. I like to make a long delivery trip non stop to maximise the time that can then be spent at the destination, two experienced  crew can easily sail her for many days at a time. She was one of the latter OOD yachts build prior to the financial downfall of Contessa in the early 80’s and has the later coach roof moulding that gives greater room in forecabin and a totally redesigned cockpit with separate gas locker, twin stern lazarettes and a large locker for sail stowage After Contessa went into receivership the remaining OOD  hulls and topsides were fitted with a smaller rig and different keel configuration to become the Contessa 34 The OOD’s have superb sea keeping facilities and are a strong and safe offshore yacht for both racing and cruising. She was built with a high standard of fittings and layout below decks so is also a comfortable yacht for cruising She is prepared for Category One ORC (  for the AZAB ) and will only require your own EPRIB and personal PLB to restore that requirement She has been maintained religiously throughout my ownership with most works being carried out personally by myself  ( I am a qualified engineer )
