Very well maintained blue water cruiser with full hydraulics
Craftsmanship, comfort and innovation... These are the key attributes of every Contest yacht. The Contest 44CS represents a giant leap forward in yachting technology - a sporty touring boat that offers an impressive sailing performance. With these words the Contest 44CS was introduced in 2001. After an intensive testing period; Yachting world magazine commented "I'll eat my hard-disk if this boat isn't a winner for Contest Yachts". "Cocopelli" is built in 2005 and sailed by a couple. "Cocopelli" is stored in our heated facilities, here at the Contest Yard in Medemblik.
