Luxury performance cruiser

A rare opportunity to acquire a very well kept Contest 45CS. She is lightly used by her first & current owner. Her spacious interior by Birgit Schnaase makes it a joy to stay on board, her stiff, vacuum infused built hull secures the ultimate feeling of safety and the design of Georg Nissen maks sure you have a powerful yacht with comfortable behavior at sea. Her equipment list is almost endless with i.e. an almost new set of sails, in-mast furling main sail, 3 electric winches, extensive navigation package and so on. We are happy to send you the extensive specs of this turn key yacht! Please note this brochure is preliminary & items on pictures can be excluded from the sale.
