The Dutch specialist in semi-custom constructions Contest Yachts is pleased to announce that the Düsseldorf show is the world premiere for the brand new 17-metre Contest 55CS - a strikingly good looking, modern performance blue water cruiser.
With stunning lines both above and below the water, designed by German star designers judel/vrolijk & co., and with supervision and certification by Lloyd's Register for every single yacht built, the Contest 55CS will be a real asset in this exciting sector for couples, families and friends.
She's full of new ideas. Convince yourself of her curved superstructure styling. Discover the modern, seaworthy hull shape with the buoyant plumb bow and the tapered forward sections flaring aft into a widened stern with underbody and foils that are so well balanced that they ensure great sea comfort. So she’ll point high and be fast in light winds just as she will revel in heavier conditions. And see the integral, seamless A-frame forward for flying asymmetrics that has no bobstay so making for easy anchoring once again.
A newly conceived interior styling now features an even bigger flowing corner radius to the exquisitely finished timber work – craftsmanship of a kind not practised by other than the finest superyacht yards. Indirect lighting is to similar high standards and daylight floods in through increased overhead hatches and glazed panelling. There are also now more optional hull windows in up to four stations along the yacht’s length.
A further showstopper looks to be the innovative panoramic rear viewing window set in the master suite’s aft bulkhead. With reveal-panel slid open and transom garage door lowered, this gives a simply fabulous wide-angle seascape view straight through.
