Contest 63CS

Big, beautiful and so easily self-managed, the new 19-metre Contest 63CS is an absolute must-have! Designed for hassle-free high performance in the lightest to heaviest weathers, when seen sailing into the bay this will be the yacht everyone lusts for: drop-dead gorgeous with graceful, well-set, balanced lines from top pedigree naval architects judel/vrolijk & co; interior styling by superyacht stars Wetzels Brown Partners; and of course the Contest guarantee of the highest standards in composite construction and contemporary outfitting.

Add to that full Lloyd's Register inspection and certification, and then consider that in both three- and four-cabin configurations, this is the only such-sized yacht in sector with two identical, double VIP guest suites forward of the saloon. A combination truly not found elsewhere. You can even have a crew-cabin too if you'd prefer an extra hand. Not necessary, just another option!



The key to this Contest 63CS is that although in the 'mid-sixties' sector, an extra paid crew is just not essential. It's all about family and friends in control, working the yacht, enjoying the entirety of the sailing and the huge space both above and below deck. 

It’s about smart sailing with simple but sophisticated short-handed sailing systems which with the option of carbon or aluminium rigs include the choice of in-boom or in-mast reefing. In-boom for more performance sail shape, from full sail to reefed. In-mast for even more speedy, simpler reefing. And in both options all lines, now including halyards, are led aft for complete pedestal and cockpit control. And for even more ease there's the option of self-tacking jib.

The cockpit arrangements show the latest updates in our aft dual helm stations with central mainsheet winch and open, flat walkway through to the dep and comfortable forward leisure cockpit. Aft again there's a massive aft deck for beanbag lazing and fold-out access down to the lowered beach deck and tender garage.

Moving forward of the sleek glazed coachroof to the handsome foredeck, hatches are contoured to be flush with the deck, with the largest opening to reveal an enormous sail locker cum workshop. Foresail furling is hydraulic and incorporated into the integral bowsprit and also underdeck. Simple sophistication from stem to stern for big boat sailing made easy. 


The newly proportioned interior volume and the three- and four- double suite plans that the design and engineering teams have achieved without compromising sailing performance is simply exceptional. In essence, the accommodation arrangement begins with owner’s suite aft, two more suites with own wc and shower midships forward of the saloon, and optionally another, fourth, further forward. And then there's a second three-cabin version with additional crew cabin in the bow.

Of true unique significance in all these options, the two mirrored identical guest suites forward of the saloon are retained. This is not just a show of great geometry, it’s a rare treat, the owner now free to offer guests aboard equal luxury in their suites, so no-one ends with second best. Everyone’s a VIP!

A rare treat, indeed, the Contest 63CS is the only yacht this length in the luxury performance sector to offer this. For younger families, of course, guest cabins can be bunked, too.
