The strikingly good-looking Contest 55CS is a totally new, game-changing, go-anywhere, fifty-five-feet beauty.
Aesthetic and Practical
Aimed straight at the heart of the style conscious, couples-family-and-friends luxury cruising sector, the newly launched 17-metre Contest 55CS combines our long-standing reputation as top of the line bluewater performance builder with today's increasingly time limited lifestyle.
In the flow of that evolution, the Contest 55CS also now includes such featuring as a spectacular wide transom window in the aft suite, revealing for the occupants delightful seascape views at anchor as the transom garage door hydraulically lowers to become both bathing platform and launchpad for tender and water toys. And throughout, there is more and more light with a new approach to deck hatches and a choice in number and size of hull windows. There are options in galley and forecabin glazing, too. The yacht's lighting systems and detailing also show fresh thinking in design installation.
Options in sailing systems, set-up and management are many. Carbon or aluminium spars, cutter or sloop, in-mast or slab-reefing, and for downwind sails a carbon sprit with integral furling. Decks are topped with thick, vacuum bonded sustainable teak, and the deck plan incorporates a walk-through cockpit for the simplest and most surefooted working and sidedeck access. While lazing at anchor, that clear aft deck and foredeck, with a choice of shades and covers, make good resting spaces after enjoying a swim and splash or play with toys from that transom bathing platform and revealed grand garage-store.
Throughout, the sense of openness is instant. Yet equally evident is Contest's hallmark sea safety with the many handrails plus clever hand-holding lips to cabinetry, all ergonomic in use.
