A true classic!
Contest 48S "Markiezin" is a true example of a well kept classic from the Contest yard. Despite being built in 1986 does not mean she sails any less easy because of it. This is because of her rig set-up with the Reckmann hydraulic mainsail furling system and furling headsails as well.. Of course, the rigging system is not the only thing this contest is equipped with, further equipment includes 6 winches, stainless steel davits, electric anchor windlass, cockpit tent and much more.
If interested, please do not hesitate to contact us about this beautiful Contest 48S. And maybe with a little luck she will become yours!
