Sailing BoatsContestModel 31United Kingdom
Contest 31 Built 1973, Solid, safe, dependable, sea-keeping cruiser that was designed to be able to handle herself comfortably in all weathers. Thoughtfully designed by Uus van Essen and built by the renowned Conyplex yard in Holland in 1973 she is in rare company for her age and size as having wheel steering. She has been in the current ownership since 2013 and has enjoyed upgrades including new standing rigging (2015), repainted deck and topsides (2014), roller-reefing and lazy jacks (2013), spray hood (2015) integrated autopilot (2016), new genoa (2017), and hot water calorifier (2017) among other things. She is only on the market as the owners are upgrading to a slightly bigger Contest. For this reason she has been priced to sell. £13,500Dimensions DetailsCockpit Position: AftConstruction DetailsHull Shape: MonohullAdditional Information: Navy blue GRP hullWhite GRP deck with blue nonslipWhite GRP superstructure with blue nonslipFin keelSkeg hung rudderAft cockpit Wheel steeringTank DetailsFuel: 150 ltrs/phWater: 80NavigationNavigation AidsAutopilot: Raymarine wheel steering autopilot (2016)Compass: Sestrel binnacle steering compass with lightWind Indicator: NASA Clipper wind speed/directionDepth: Seafarer 701 depth sounder with repeater in cockpitVHF: Uniden MC6700 VHF radio with telephone and cockpit speakerAdditional Navigation Information: Garmin 128 GPS (with link to autopilot. 2003)NASA Masthead LED anchor light/tricolour (2014)Windex wind vaneRig/SailsSails DetailsMainsails: White Dacron, Quantum mainsail 2006Spinnaker: Cruising chuteGenoa: White Dacron Hyde Genoa (2017)JIB / Staysail: Storm jibAdditional Information: Blade (2004)Rig DetailsRig Type: SloopRigging Age: Stainless steel standing rigging (replaced 2015)Additional Information: Anodised aluminium mast, boom and spinnaker poleInner detachable forestayFurlex roller reefing (2013)Crusader stack-pack and lazy jack system (2013)Winches DetailsGenoa Sheet: 2 x Stireiss ER40 Genoa sheet winchesHalyards: Lewmar 6 mast winch, Antal W16 mast winchSafety EquipmentSafety Equipment DetailsEPIRB: NoNo. Life Jackets: 0Jack Stays: NONo. Life Buoy: 0No. Dan Buoy: 1No. Electric Bilge Pumps: 0No. Manual Bilge Pumps: 1Radar Reflector: NO Emergency Tiller: YES Gas Alarm: NO No. Of Fire Blanket: 1 No. Of Fire Extinguishers: 0 EquipmentDeck Equipment DetailsAnchor 1: 16kg CQR anchor with 27.4m/90ft of 3/8 chainAnchor 2: 8kg Grapnel kedge anchorAdditional Information: NASA Masthead LED anchor light/tricolour (2014)Spreader deck lightsOutboard bracketStainless steel boarding ladderVarious warps and fendersBoat hookEnsign & staffTenders & Toy DetailsElectronicsElectrics DetailsOn-board Voltage1: 12VDomestic Batteries: 12v Domestic battery 2018Engine Batteries: 12v Engine battery 2010Battery Charger Make: Battery charger includedShore Power: NO Additional Information: Victron BMV702 Volt metre (2016)Machinery DetailsEngine Age: ReplacedProp Type: FoldingDrive Type: ShaftAdditional Information: Lombardini 702 20hp, installed new in 2004, Engine hours 566Last serviced January 2019Shaft drive to Bruntons folding propCruising speed 5kts, max speed 6ktsAccommodationNo. of Doubles: 1No. Singles: 3No. Saloon Berths: 3No. Heads: 1Calorifier (Size/Make/Model): Hot water calorifier (2017)Cooker: Nelson cooker with oven, grill, and 2 hobsEntertainment System: Pioneer DEH-236 CD/RadioAdditional Information: Sleeps 5 in 2 cabins Forward double V-berth2x settee berths and 1x pilotHeads with Jabsco W/C between saloon and forecabin Lee boards on all berthsDark wood interior joineryBlue saloon upholsteryCream bedding upholsteryDomesticStainless steel sinkIntegral cool box...Read full description
