Experience the new standard of cruising and racing on board sailing yacht PH3. Apart from performance related upgrades, this yacht also comes with luxury upgrades like a flushed foredeck area which can be raised to become a picnic table and lowered to store the 325 Williams jettender(from 2019) on carbon brackets, a spacious garage for toy storage and separate crew quarters in the bow.

Just like all other Contest Yachts, the hull is vacuum infused and fully Lloyd's certified, which makes this yacht unique in comparison. Step on board and experience the sublime luxury, innovative systems and beautiful interior design that this ship has to offer. Pure Dutch craftmanship.
