The MG-C27 was originally the Contessa 27, and as such she was designed by legendary yacht

designer Rob Humphreys. In 1985 the moulds and design of the Contessa 27 were purchased
by MG Yachts and thereafter sold as the MG-C27. They do, as you would expect, have the
capabilities and performance that has given Contessa their reputation.
"Calluna" is a tidy example of this popular cruiser/racer having been lovingly owned and cruised
by her current owners. There is work to be done to her as the owners are selling before
completing this years winter refit program and as such she is competitively priced and sensible
offers are encouraged.
