At Last! After several years of careful consideration, it gives us great pleasure to inform you that we will be unveiling a very exciting new design.The Contest 42CS – a unique family performance cruiser that sets a new standard for sailing yachts in this size bracket.

Combining unrivalled Contest quality with various customisation options, you will love the 42CS’s spacious light interior with an owner’s suite and choice of one or two guest cabins.
