The first of three versions aimed straight at the superyacht tender/chase boat market as well as high end, high speed, open cockpit luxury powerboater, the Contest 52MC Open Sport brings to the sports market sector for the first time the very best of Dutch semi-custom building. This introduces a complete new set of impressive standards, improving on comfort both underway and at rest, on safe working and movement around deck, on the level of personalisation, and the absolute thrill and pleasure in ownership. The Contest 52MC Open Sport will impress.
More information will follow soon.
Available in three versions: Open Sport with long-sided wraparound screen (above image); Open Sport Classic with Sixties’ reminiscent short-sided screen; and Open Sport T-Top with composite fibre, opening roof shade; all are based on Contest’s exceptional all-weather performance hull with the security feature of deep bulwarks and walkaround decks. Twin 550hp 6 cylinder Cummins engines will deliver well-mannered speed and, with the proven and much admired, clever hybrid hull design, very comfortable cruising both on and off the plane. And with the option of Seakeeper zero-speed stabiliser, she’s as steady as a rock both at speed and rest, happily taking the rock’n’roll out of anchoring for lunch and over-nighting.
Below deck, the accommodation can be planned according to personal taste in not just materials and finishing but in cabin configuration with a multiple choice between three cabins and two heads or two cabins, two heads and lower deck galley. The level of detailing and technical installation far exceeds the sector standards and Contest’s extensive experience in vacuum infused, sandwich, composite construction, and long alliance with acoustic specialist Van Capellen, delivers a very quiet running boat, free of noise and vibration.
