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.
Construction is to the highest Dutch standards with each yacht combining hand finished craftsmanship with modern technologies including five-axis CNC cutting, vacuum resin infusion of balsa cored composite hulls and vacuum bonding of teak decks. Combined, this assures accuracy, consistency and optimised integrity for a stronger, lighter, more durable yacht.
Underneath the flush deck a crew of 5/6 can be accommodated in the high end, hand made, interior of which the Contest yard is famous. All the hatches are fitted with blinds / insect screen rollo's. The interior is fitted with light oak and dark grey upholstery. The starboard side aft cabin is now a single bed, but can easily be changed to a double bed.
