This Contest 48 "Donton" is a true classic Contest yacht built to Lloyd's standards. In 2021 she underwent a major refit amounting to a total of EUR 140,000. She received a complete new vacuum glued teak deck. Navigation instruments were replaced, she received new standing and running rigging, the hull was repainted, new electric genoa furler, new hydraulic mainsail furler, including a full new set of sails. All sea exhausts were replaced, bow thruster was refitted and the boat was provided with a new dinghy and electric outboard engine. In other words, her current owner was not shy when it came bringing this beautiful classic back into an immaculate state. A very comfortable and luxurious blue water cruising yacht, well maintained and equipped and ready for a new owner.
