General Description:

Please scroll down to view more photos


This versatile yacht from the board of the talented Georg Nissen,  well known for his fabulous Contest 55s, has it all.  Mary Ann has had considerable refit work done by a fastidious owner and presents in beautiful condition.  I know,  I did some of the rigging work myself and can attest to the quality.  Shallow draft when you want it,  deep when you need it to windward,  this yacht sails very well on all points,  and can motor well too.  The interior is light and tasteful,  again it is all there.  Check out the photos, or better still see her for yourself.
