Centre cocpit blue water cruiser
A rare opportunity to acquire a superbly maintained Contest 45CS. Her spacious interior by Birgit Schnaase and her strong vacuum built hull (designed by Georg Nissen) make it a joy to stay on board. Her electric in boom furling guarantees top performance reached at great ease due to her 4 electric winches. Easy navigation with her radar/plotter with big screen repeater in cockpit. Her very silent genset gives you electrical independence.
