With its flush deck and low, integrated superstructure, the Contest 57CS has a truly striking appearance.

Daylight floods into the interior through the large windows, generating an exceptionally pleasant atmosphere. Another design highlight is the spacious cockpit with its twin steering position and free passage to the interior.

Optional features on the 57CS include an integrated swim platform, while a smart operational concept allows the yacht to be sailed single-handedly if desired. So, pure Life. Style. Sailing.
