The Contest 85CS truly reflects the maturing relationship between Contest Yachts and world class design partners judel/vrolijk and Wetzels Brown. At 26 metres, the Contest 85CS with Lloyd’s certified hull and accommodation for up to eight to ten guests and two to four crew, is a yacht set to take the world in its stride, very capably, very comfortably and very securely.
This Contest 85CS perfectly exemplifies Contest Yachts’ open approach to customisation. With Contest’s philosophy and practice, the scale and scope of potential personalisation for this new flagship is exceptional.
There are eight principal plans for the accommodation and multiple versions of deck detailing. Rigs will likely all be carbon but choice remains, including reefing method, sail plan and sail type. That’s just the beginning. Where to end is the owner’s prerogative.
