Owners Comments
Antares II is in good condition for her age and her hull was professionally sandblasted and sanded prior to antifoul last June. Sails are in good conditions as are the covers. She is also equipped with a ‘good as new’ bespoke cockpit tent. Plenty of space down below and can sleep 6 in 3 cabins.

I have owned her since spring 2010 and she has been lightly cruised with routine storage ashore over winter months. Engine serviced regularly. 2 previous owners.

The Contest 34 is a well-known ‘classic’, very seaworthy and still very much catches the eye. A boat that will look after you.

Builders Comments
Fast seaworthy cruiser/racer. A 3/4 tonner, designed by Dick Zaal in accordance with the IOR rules. This yacht has very good performance, combined with a spacious, wooden interior
