Contest 57CS: pure Life. Style. Sailing.

With its flush deck and low, integrated superstructure, the appearance of the Contest 57CS is both modern and elegant. The characteristic windows of the 62CS that allow daylight to flood into the interior are also included in the design of the 57-footer. This results in a very pleasant atmosphere below deck, while the spacious cockpit has a twin steering position and free passage to the interior. one of many optional features is an integrated swim platform, and the smart operational concept allows the vessel to be sailed singlehandedly if necessary.
