About this Contest Contest 33

Remarks :
The Dick Zaal designed Contest 33 is a well known and sought after cruiser. She can be easily handled by two persons while having the advantage of being a sturdy and sea-kindly boat well thought of by sailors everywhere. The interior layout has been designed to give the interior a light and airy feel, while making the most of the space. 

This particular example has been very well looked after and upgraded by the current owner with a extensive list of works completed and part renewed in the last few seasons - she'll make a good investment for her next owners. 

Wanderbird has had many upgrades since the current owner has has her.
