The Contest range of performance bluewater sailing yachts includes eight models spanning 42ft to 85ft (13m to 26m) to suit club sailing, offshore cruising and world circling whether shorthanded as a couple or with full family and friends, and both private and charter.
Construction is to the highest Dutch standards with each yacht combining hand finished craftsmanship with modern technologies including five-axis CNC cutting, vacuum resin infusion of balsa cored composite hulls and vacuum bonding of teak decks.
Combined, this assures accuracy, consistency and optimised integrity for a stronger, lighter, more durable yacht. And every yacht leaving this family owned yard does so with the valued endorsement of full Lloyds certification.
That’s good for longevity, good for residual values.
In response to increasing demand, Contest Yachts recently launched its first motor cruiser in more than half a century's boat building, the Contest 52MC. The press is full of praise and the 52MC has also impressed commissioning owners including both retiring sailors, seeking the same levels of attention to detail and seakindliness assured in every Contest yacht, and also experienced motor boaters new to the brand and combined approach.
