1966 Pearson Countess 44

This grand dame of the seas has had the same caring and knowledgeable owner for almost her entire life and indeed she was dry stored for over 15 years whilst her owner worked overseas, no abandonment for this yacht.  For the last few years her captain has lovingly rebuilt her to tip top shape and she is now ready to meet her new owner who will explore the oceans once again in comfort and keep her in the immaculate condition she is accustomed to..  She is a recognized blue water vessel with a custom teak interior, spacious over 6.6' accommodations with plenty of storage. The Countess 44 is well suited as a comfortable live-aboard and cruiser. For those of you who know the Countess 44, her current owner is the primary point of contact for all these beautiful yachts and over 45 years has come to know every nut and bolt in her. Not only has he maintained her in beautiful condition but has extensively upgraded her with many new features. He is looking for a new owner to continue her loving upkeep and will certainly be available to offer help and assistance to her new owner. You can visit his web site at Countess44.com.
