Very well equipped blue water cruiser
This Contest 50CS is very well maintained and kept up to date. She comes with an almost new main sail (2014), a brand new genoa (2016), a new battery bank (8x 90Amp) and a complete set of electronics. Her light upholstery is spotless and makes her interior fresh and warm at the same time. The teak joinery is in mint condition as well. She sails 2-6 persons in great comfort and ease, due to her hydraulic operated sails and electric winches. With her generator she is independent from shore power which enables you to anchor in idyllic area's. If you are looking for a well equipped and perfect maintained "Blue water cruiser", you should have a look at Ithaka!
