What Contest Yachts say about this model: "THE CONTEST 55CS: The option to criss-cross the world’s oceans with a small crew, safely and comfortably, benefiting at all times from superior sailing characteristics. This was the philosophy behind the original concept for the Contest 55CS devised by Doug Peterson and developed by Georg Nissen. Now, from his drawing board comes an updated version with a larger cockpit and new deck layout. Nissen has taken advantage of the latest construction techniques to bring the 55CS right up to date, creating a yacht that synthesises comfort and performance to perfection. This genuine ocean cruiser is a pleasure to sail and a beauty to behold. She is equally at home, gliding elegantly through tranquil waters or or on passage through heavy weather and big seas. Given her immense strength her speed, even in light airs, will come as a pleasant surprise. While the Contest 55CS can easily be handled from the sheltered cockpit by a crew of two, the yacht is spacious enough for eight people to sail in true comfort. The fact that every Contest is fabulously finished is well-known, perhaps less obvious, but equally important is the thorough evaluation of the latest innovations and the adoption of those that meet our stringent criteria for quality, reliability and useability. The 55CS is built using the vacuum infusion method. This offers a lighter, stronger and stiffer hull, which in turn guarantees excellent sailing parameters. The exceptional performance of the Contest 55CS is further enhanced by her wing keel, designed by Piet van Oossanen, which is fitted as standard. The 55CS also offers the finest in indoor and alfresco living. Both above and below decks, spaciousness, luxury and privacy are assured. And with a choice of interior options, you can customise the yacht’s layout and materials to your own requirements." This beautiful yacht is currently laid up ashore in the Netherlands. Please email or call us with your questions and to discuss viewing her.
