Vision Doeve Brokers

The Vri-Jon Contessa 40 is a beautifully designed motor cruiser that, due to her mooring, has an excellent starting point for exploring the French waters. It is a very practical motor yacht with her wider sidewalks without a step to the aft deck, making the yacht easy to move on. Her spacious aft deck, with steering position, provides a good overview when sailing and is an excellent sun deck that is also equipped with a bimini with side parts. Inside there is a spacious owner's cabin with French bed, en-suite bathroom, lounge with comfortable sofa, a kitchen with dinette and in the bow is the guest cabin with a toilet room next to it. In the past there has been some leakage at the windows, which has affected the woodwork there. The ceiling in the salon also needs some attention. Despite these points, in our opinion she is an interesting motor yacht.
