Contest 45CS

You like fast, comfortable and easy sailing based on a time-honoured, yet modern concept? The 45CS is just the boat you need!

The modern underwater section of the 45CS creates a yacht that is eminently suitable for both leisure sailing and racing. Equipped with a balanced spade rudder, she can be effortlessly steered in any conditions and her maneuvеrаbility in harbour will delight and amaze in equal measure. The entire deck layout of the Contest 45CS was designed for maximum operational comfort from the cockpit, allowing the yacht to be sailed by one or two people. Class, quality, sophistication and great sailing… The Contest 45CS has it all.

10 reasons to understand better the superiority of Contest Yachts:

1. Shipyard is more than 50 years old, and it is a family business
2. Yachts are made in Holland, where the best boats were built through history
3. Every boat is special, made with special care, strictly upon request
4. Every client is special for the shipyard, and can follow the building of his boat
5. Client becomes a part of Contest family, because Contest meets all the client's wishes
6. Aftersales services are included in the contract and can be done anywhere in the world by official service points
7. High level of quality, attention to all the details
8. Hull is built with special vacuum-infusion that eliminates air from the structure, which makes it stronger
9. Contest organizes every year gathering of their clients, such as regattas in different parts of the world
10. Contest is more than a shipyard, it is a family passion for perfection
