About this Contest 41

The range of Contest yachts has been large, many models have been built and this ketch was one of only six produced.  A strong and seaworthy type, well built and attractive interior. Re powered in 2012 with a new 54hp Yanmar, new teak decks in 2008 and well equipped for offshore sailing, the yacht will appeal to anyone seeking a sound ketch for their cruising adventures.


A classic teak interior, the yacht features an owner's cabin aft with its own en suite, large double up front with a bathroom adjacent.  The interior condition is very good for the age of the yacht.  Lighting and ventilation is good, a mixture of LED and incandescent lighting.  There is a WEBASTO heating system, replaced in 2013.  

Lockers and wardrobes are abundant in this yacht, the passageway to the aft cabin has a full height wardrobe that has been set aside for more general storage just behind the nav station.
