Broker's comments

Cruising at it's best, the Contest range is suited just for that. Space, comfort, reliability and quality in construction and finishing, the Contest 40S has it all. Coming on board, you will be pleasantly surprised on what this Contest 40S model has to offer. Two cabins with en suite facilities for optimum privacy and comfort. Sailing and handling is safe and reliable form the centre cockpit which gives also shelter in adverse conditions. With the wing keel she offers shallow draft but still good sail performance. And it opens up lots of sail areas.
