For Sale – Piglet – 1983 Rogers Contessa

J24 for sale in Plymouth, UK.

Piglet is a 1983 Rogers Contessa, she is one of the first Rogers/Contessa built J24s, and has 6kg of lead correctors. She has a full Viadana/Harken setup, mostly replaced in 2019. New Kingfisher ropes throughout in 2019, as well as updated deck layout setup. The Dart Sails and Covers mainsail and genoa were new in 2016, North jib and spinnaker. Spinnaker launching bag, Harken windward sheeting car, Harken winches, all deck hardware inc. genoa and jib cars, winch handle, minimum length mast, maximum length forestay, measurement certificate and full inventory for legality (fire extinguisher/first aid kid etc)

Trailer was refurbished in 2018 and 2019, with new pads, new jockey wheel, new brakes, new extendable trailerboard tray.

Prior to my ownership she was antifouled for a few years, so substantial work has been done on the hull to remove antifoul over the last couple of years. Some work is required to get the hull to a final 1200 grit polished standard; this is the final thing that we would do if we were keeping her, however a new boat forces sale.

Recent National Circuit results include 2nd Autumn Cup 2018, 6th Spring Cup 2019, 3rd PYC J24 event 2020. She is quick, light, and capable of top 5 race positions nationally and internationally (UK Nationals, Kiel Week). Prior to my ownership she has raced successfully in IRC fleets in Dartmouth and Falmouth, and has a long successful history as a quick J24 on the South Coast, in Falmouth, Plymouth and Lymington (she was originally owned by the Mayor of Lymington) She has not been used but for 2 events in 2020 due to Covid.

Price: £5995.
