Broker's comments

Comfort, reliability, quality of construction and finish ...... the Contest 41 has it all. A true blue water cruiser that has sailed many oceans. Spacious salon combined with a large owner's cabin and luxury guest cabin; ideal for longer trips with a family or a couple. The sails are easy to operate, safe and reliable from the center cockpit which provides shelter and comfort under all conditions. The wing keel combines a shallow draft yet good sailing performance. Located in Torrevieja - Spain and ready to visit by appointment.
