Tomorrow is the beginning of March and the sailing and boating season is marching towards us.

If you see yourself enjoying this season with a second hand boat then you may be interested in some of the boats we now have available for sale at reduced prices.

If you’re looking for a Jeanneau, Bavaria or Contessa boat for sale in Essex we may have the boat you are looking for. As with all Boatshed boats we have an extensive slideshow of images for each boat for sale, so that you can really examine the boat inside and out.

Jeanneau Prestige 42 now £179,000

This is a very modern looking Motor Yacht in every respect and the champagne coloured hull really makes her stand out.

This Prestige 42 has only 200 hours use and, as you would therefore expect is in great condition. The Cumming Diesels each generate 425hp, enabling the boat to reach a top speed of just over 30 Knots.

She is also very well equipped with Raymarine instrumentation that includes two Chart Plotters. The Bow and Stern Thrusters, with the remote to control to work both simultaneously, ensure she is also easy to handle is close quarters.

Bavaria 37 now £82,000

This Bavaria 37 has clearly been very well looked after. She is the deep fin version ideal for passage making in ocean conditions. She is also a very roomy modern yacht with accommodation to sleep 8, ideal for family and friends. This is the three cabin version with two aft cabins and a forward cabin all doubles. The inventory is quite extensive and includes good instrumentation with a radar and chart plotter. She also benefits from a large sized spray hood that makes up to a full cockpit enclosure.

Contessa 32 now £26,000

Our broker Steve says, “The Contessa 32 really is one of the few yachts that needs no introduction they are probably one of the most well known and best loved boats ever built. Their reputation as blue water cruiser/racers is second to none; add to this the beautiful lines and you have a true Classic.”

The Contessa 32 we have for sale has been owned from 1988 by her current owners who are reluctantly retiring from sailing. She is set up as a cruising yacht and has the cutter rig mentioned in more detail on the full listing. The owners have continually upgraded the boat during their ownership and she has been carefully maintained. This yacht comes with a good cruising inventory and is more than capable of taking her new owners as far afield as they may wish to go.

Where will this season take you?
