Broker's comments

Compared to the other yachts in the same class, the Contest 45CS has an exceptionally spacious interior with 2 metre headroom in the saloon, with the benefits from uninterrupted views in all directions. Even with three cabins, this Contest 45CS has the same superior finish as other Contest Yachts. This Contest 45CS is multi-functional with the possibility to sleep 8 (!) when necessary, while being sailed single handed very easy. You are welcome at our office in Sint Annaland 7 days a week to visit this beautiful Blue Ocean sailing yacht .
