Broker notes
Testa Rossa has been owned for the past 9 years by the vendors. Present owners are selling only for health reasons and now seek new owners to enjoy their much-cherished yacht - asking price now further reduced.
Powered by the reliable Ford Mermaid Meteor 56hp Ford engine with feathering Maxprop and updated systems.
Standing rig replaced 2011 with new Furlex 310, running rig with Cruising Dyneema and self-tail Lewmar 46 genoa winches - recent sails include fully battened main and several recent genoas, plus lightweight spinnaker and a cruising asymmetric chute complement a comprehensive sail wardrobe.
Raymarine ST60 nav instruments, with plotter, radar, AIS and Icom VHF DSC and autopilot - all interfaced.
Deck gear includes recent cockpit teak seating, power windlass (2013) and well-selected ground tackle.
Interior is really comfortable, a practical sea-going galley, Eberspacher heating (2013).
Fitted with the legendary Stephen Jones wing keel, this 39 is set up for serious off-shore cruising in comfort and safety, with fast passages achieved.

Testa Rossa is a well maintained yacht and we have no hesitation in commending her to the next owner - call Mike for more detail - offers close to reduced asking price of £53,500 will be considered.
