CONTESSA is another great boat for family charters. Contessa is a 56-foot Nautical ketch with a crew of two. Contessa is air conditioned and accommodates up to 6 guests in three cabins. The master cabin aft has a queen berth, and the forward cabins are best considered as having two single berths each (The centerline doubles are very narrow for 2 people to share).
