1974 Contest 33 £14,459
The Contest 33 is a classic fin and skeg cruiser-racer from the 1970s, from a high-quality Dutch builder. This 1974 example has a very tidy interior. Unusually for a traditional yacht of this size, she also has wheel steering. If you are thinking of a Rival 31 or Contessa 32, have a look at this less well-known yacht instead.
