Netherlands-based shipyard Contest Yachts has launched the first hull in its 85CS luxury sailing yacht series, which measures 25.85m/85ft in length.

Contest 85CS – launch

Established German naval architects Judel/Vrolijk & Co and Dutch interior designers Wetzels Brown Partners also put their stamp upon the project to create an impeccable quality semi-custom sloop capable of ocean cruising. Constructed to Lloyd’s Register standards and holding a Lloyd’s Register Hull Construction Certificate, innovative vacuum infusion moulding techniques have resulted in a lightweight hull for approaching close to sheltered shorelines.

Contest 85CS – launched

She was commissioned for an Owner experienced in ocean cruising that wanted special attention paid to safety systems on board as well as the interior layout for the purpose of comfortable world-wide circumnavigation with a crew usually consisting of only two, however the accommodation can provide for up to four crew and nine guests.

Above deck there are two C-shaped sofas placed around an elevated table within the cockpit and behind there is a sunpad to port and starboard for relaxing after a sumptuous meal. The helm station is placed aft with plenty of space along the stern for exercise and access to the water. The foredeck features plenty of skylights to illuminate the interior below and there is plenty of room for observation and outdoor exercise.

In light wind conditions, a single Volvo Penta D-4 engine draws from a 2,500-litre fuel tank and a bow thruster for cruising power.
