Building and history

CONTEST 48 CS polyester cutter-rigged yacht built in 1999 by Coniplex BV to the designs of architect Nissen Dickzaal Yacht Design. This Dutch construction is renowned for its flawless solidity, which can rival the quality of a Najad.
The first owner wanted a yacht with every safety and comfort feature. Her hull is robust enough for all types of seas, and her equipment is oversized. The fin keel (6 T) is integrated into the hull.
The boat has sailed the North Sea, the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, the Adriatic Sea and then the Pacific with the second owners, who stopped their trip in Polynesia.
Recent sails on hydraulic furlers with helm control - in a central cockpit - guarantee easy and safe sailing. Life on board is very pleasant, thanks to the light and airy interior.
