Contest Information

 The starting point of Contest Yachts is that they sell more than just premium quality yachts. Their clients enjoy a lifestyle that revolves around broadening their horizons. The allure and performance of Contest Yachts fit perfectly within this philosophy, which is why Contest’s credo is: Life, style, sailing.

History

50 years ago Ed Conijn started building the popular Flying Dutchman boats. Shortly after he launched his first cruising yacht, the Contest 25. This design was an immediate international success and served as the foundation of the company. Many new models were designed in the next decennia and Conyplex grew into a yacht builder of global stature. In the last 15 years the emphasis has shifted from serial building to semi-customised yachts between 45 and 60 feet. Contest Yachts has always been a family company with actually the third generation in charge.

The yard

Contest Yachts will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2009. Throughout this half a century of success, the yard has always kept the entire production process in its own hands. This guarantees customers the highest possible standards.

In cooperation with their renowned designers, leading research institutes and the best suppliers, they are always looking for innovative and suitable solutions to optimise their yachts. This has resulted in a wide range of high quality performance cruisers that have found their way all over the world.

Design

It is always a great challenge to harmonize the characteristics demanded by Contest Yachts: perfect use of space and absolute comfort together with excellent sailing performance. I am convinced that each new owner will find the design of the yachts impossible to resist. This is sailing… this is the life”.

Georg Nissen, Naval Architect

You will immediately feel at home in the modern, light interior of Contest Yachts, which subtly blends modern materials and finishes with impeccable craftsmanship. I devised the new Contest look of the 45CS, 50CS and 60CS in close cooperation with the yard. Various interior options give you the opportunity to choose a design that best fits your particular needs, depending on whether you wish to sail with two, with a group of friends or with a professional crew”.
