Broker's comments

Beautiful craftsmanship throughout, the interior of the Contest 40/42S has a luxurious atmosphere. With a well known designer as Dick Zaal, the entire range of yachts is seaworthy, reliable and very comfortable indeed. The Contest 40/42S has ample stowage space and headroom, combined with a smart and effective layout, makes her ideal for an owner’s couple. Handling is easy with her full furling sails and electric winches.
