Originally the Contessa 27. In 1985 the molds and design of the Contessa 27 were purchased by MG Yachts and thereafter sold as the MG-C27. A number of companies molded hulls for MG Yachts including Jaguar Yachts and Northshore Yachts. Northshore yachts eventually took over MG Yachts.
There was also a drop keel version: draft from 3.16’ - 5.83’.
