Modish, elegant, the bluewater Stradivarius, just some of the praises sung of the Contest 42CS by the world’s leading yachting media. So, no wonder this neat, sophisticated 13-metre cruiser is a proud European Yacht of the Year winner.

And just as this aft-cockpit yacht is about quality and comfort, it’s also about performance and design. The Contest 42CS is the smallest range-model, yet from the get-go conceived and constructed to the very same high production and sailing values of the larger yachts in the Contest line. At this length exceptional, and as such exactly the findings of the expert jury of top European yachting editors.

Altogether, this with a remarkable choice of cabin, deck and rig arrangements makes the up to 6+2 berth Contest 42CS fully capable of safe, comfortable and fast ocean passaging while also offering perfect coastal hopping and bay outings for younger families or couples simply vacationing.
