The Contest 42CS was introduced in 2013 and by just seeing the first drawings and knowing the craftsman ship of the Dutch, family owned, yard, the frst yachts where sold! This immediate success was followed by her election for "European Yacht of the Year" of 2013/2014 Luxury Cruiser class. "Tessa" is build for speed and luxury cruising at the same time. Her increased performance comes due to her carbon mast, the 3Di sails and a powerfull, furling, Code Zero which is like a secret weapon. Her easy handling is made possible by her in-boom furling, elec. winches and electric head ails furler. Tessa has 3 cabins, 5 beds (can be changed to 6 easily) and 2 heads. Her white washed oak interior makes her extra light. She is the "short handed version" with the central winch for the main sail sheet.
