Launched for the 2020 season, the 18.5 metre Contest 59CS with new styling from judel/vrolijk & co continues the refreshing modernity running through the evolving Contest line.
The Personal Choice
Intended for friends and family operation, sailing systems and deck management are easily handled, and the varied three and four cabin arrangements enable very personal choice, including workshop and a crew cabin if that is wished.
Styled by Wetzels Brown Partners, the Contest 59CS clearly shares the themes and detailing of our larger yachts, bringing the enjoyment of exquisitely contoured and fashioned furnishings and finishes, and the concealed but easily revealed inner systems that make this yacht a joy to go long term cruising or shorter stay regatta racing. With a wide choice of interior plans including master suite forward or aft, various guest options, and plenty of space for kit and equipment.
Decks are in Contest’s signature vacuum bonded, substantial quality teak, and working space is uncluttered yet well sorted with handholds well planned, including high rails and plentiful clipping-on points. The two-section cockpit, dividing lounging and control, separates function but maintains social flow between all aboard, and access to deck is excellent with clear walkway through aft.
Sloop with blade jib and optional sprit for offwind sails. Designed for ease in operation with central mainsheet winch to hand between the helm stations which incorporate joystick and button controls for all cockpit winching and hoisting.
Modern big boat styling permitting many variations in cabin planning and detailing with wide choice in materials from timber grain to soft furnishings and lighting. Electronics, filtration and maintenance equipment all easily accessed.
Secure deck plan with safe, wide, trip-free decks with plentiful secure handholds and clip points. Easy, safe access between cockpit and deck, and separation of cockpit working and lounging areas makes for relaxing times aboard.
