Broker's Comments

Contest Yachts are renowned, sturdy vessels and this one is an excellent example of a Contest 27, the owner has clearly spend a great deal of time and money bringing this yacht up to the standard she is today.
New beta 16hp engine 2016, repainted, rigging replaced 2019, new sails, new sprayhood, Jabsco sea toilet, keel bolts.

Although the photos give some appreciation to this yachts condition, I would highly recommend a viewing.
