Contest Yachts has started production of a new order for the largest boat built by this leading Dutch yard. The Contest 72CS yacht will synthesise all Contests’ 50-plus years of experience and craftsmanship with the very latest engineering and technology.
When launched in the summer of 2012, the new Contest 72CS yacht will be a phenomenal new flagship for the ever-expanding Contest fleet. Contest Yachts recently launched the first Contest 57CS and modern versions of its entire range of bluewater cruisers are being introduced alongside the traditional designs that have served this family-run yard so well.
“While impressed with our current largest vessel, the Contest 62CS, the clients wanted to go a step further. We were delighted to oblige and the Contest 72CS sailin yacht fits clearly into our strategy of meeting market demands for larger yachts,” said managing director Arjen Conijn.
The 72CS is the phenomenal new flagship of the Contest fleet. Sensually sleek, magnificently designed, its go-anywhere cruising potential is equally open to an adventurous couple as a party of ten.
