Jeremy Rogers Ltd. is a British boatyard based in Lymington. Eponymous with its founder, Jeremy Rogers, it is currently known for construction to order of the classic Contessa 32 design, and refurbishment of Contessa yachts. The yard is notable for the high quality handbuilding of the yachts, and the seaworthiness of the designs compared to modern mass-production yards.

History[edit]

The business was founded by Rogers in 1971, and by the early 1980s was employing 200 people in five factories in Lymington building the Contessa 26, Contessa 32 and the Doug Peterson designed Grand Prix 35s, 39s and 43s, and exporting the yachts worldwide. Although bankruptcy forced production to stop, in 1995 the Contsssa 32 moulds were bought back and production on a bespoke basis restarted. The yard currently offers refurbishment and parts support for Contessa yachts, as well as refitting of other yacht makes.
