Broker's Comments

This boat was originally a Contest 46 that had an extended transom professionally fitted to provide a swim platform increasing the overall length to that of the Contest 48 at a cost of 50.000€. There were substantial improvements in 2018 including a brand new Volvo Penta D3 engine, bow thruster, generator, sea cocks and some electronics.

A blue water cruiser with a lot of very comfortable accommodation below complete with a full galley and convertible saloon.

A beautiful yacht with very significant recent improvements.
