Contest 35S 1990

PRICE £44,900

Designed by Dick Zaal and with 48 yachts built over a ten year period (1988-1998), the Contest 35s is now a classic Contest, but she was a very popular model and upon stepping aboard it’s easy to see why.

The well known Contest quality is striking, and she is a very well proportioned yacht. She has an excellent layout, a good sized cockpit and this particular 35s has been extensively upgraded and meticulously maintained by the current and previous owners, she is a fine example and viewing is highly recommended.
