Chartering Contessa 32/Nicholson 31 in U.S.

I've got my short list of boats down to two: the Contessa 32 (either Canadian- or English-made) or the Nicholson 31.

Has any helpful soul heard of any place in the U.S. -- and I stress *any* place -- where those boats can be chartered?

My research has turned up only U.K. charter operations offering those boats.

Many thanks for any assistance.

Dan-

Given the size and layout of those two boats, I doubt that either is in charter anyplace in the US. They don't have the space below to work as a charter boat in the US market, where most of the charter boats are wide, beamy, and not very seaworthy.

The Contessa 32 is still made IIRC...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hi, Sailingdog --

Yes, the Contessa 32 is still being made: Jeremy Rogers - Boat building excellence for 40 years

I hope you're wrong about the rest of it!

Thanks for your response.
