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. We are happy to send you the extensive specs to get an idea of this turn key yacht!
