Experienced boaters are all welcome to the Contest Yachts Open House on Saturday 21 April 2018 from 10.00 to 16.00 in Medemblik, Holland.
Guided tours and lectures
You can choose for a tour at the yard and/or attend a wide range of specialist expert lectures.
Demonstrations during the day include understanding the vacuum resin infusion moulding method, woodworking aboard and laying of teak decks. Contest Yachts’ preferred suppliers will also be on hand to present and discuss the how, what and why of navigation and electrical systems, watermakers, ropes and rigging, technical sports clothing, yacht transport and insurance throughout the day to provide visitors with expert, specialist knowledge and advice.
There will naturally be the chance to inspect new yachts within the range.
The programme will be published on this website, in March.
Contest Brokerage and MYS
A selection of fine pre-owned yachts will also be open for viewing on-site with the dedicated Contest Brokerage division, and the team will be pleased to help visitors with these as well as the many other listed yachts located elsewhere and marketed through the global network of Contest Brokerage. Yacht owners who are considering selling their own yacht are also in the right place to discuss arrangements and potential. The Open House also offers visitors the opportunity to become acquainted with all the extensive, full service facilities of MYS (Medemblik Yacht Services) for both summer and winter needs. The specialists of MYS will be happy to explain what they can do with questions about repair, maintenance, complete refits of yachts and also storage (heated hall and dry standing) and moorings.
