The Contest boats are all blue water cruisers built in the Netherlands by one of the best shipyards in the world for quality, innovation and elegance. Each Contest boat is built according to the owner’s wishes: Contest is unlike any other boat. From 42 to 85 feet, they can make your dream come true.
Contest 42 CS
Easy handling and speed: no wonder the Contest 42 CS was voted European Yacht of the Year 2014.
The aft cockpit allows for an individual space layout that is unique in this size and is therefore also suitable for long-distance cruises with the family. Individually built to the same high standards as the entire product range.

Contest 55 CS
In 2020, the Contest 55 CS was designed by Judel / Vrolijk: Aesthetics and practicality are truly perfect partners. A yacht with Lloyd-certified carbon structures that gain strength, space and weight. New interior design, new materials, new brightness below deck, the same solid contest tradition. Winner of the British Yachting Awards 2020 in the Bluewater Cruisers category.
Contest 59 CS
The 18.5-metre Contest 59 CS, launched in 2020, continues the evolution of the Contest series started by designers Judel / Vrolijk.
The interior decks are elevated and allow a direct view through the panoramic windows, which are located under an elegant, newly designed superstructure.
Various three- and four-cabin layouts allow for highly personalised choices, including a work and crew cabin. A boat with the technical solutions, materials and equipment typical of a superyacht.
Contest 63 CS
The Contest 63 CS is characterised by sleek, soft lines.
The two-zone cockpit separates the guest area from the wheelhouse. An opening cockpit with garage and all controls with electro-hydraulic steering.
Inside, there is plenty of space, which is filled with light through the numerous portholes on the hull, the hatches and the panoramic windows. Customisable layouts with up to 5 cabins.
Contest 67 CS
The Contest 67CS marks the beginning of the cooperation with the German company Judel / Vrolijk. By combining the expertise
results in a yacht that is easy to handle and comfortable to sail. The waterlines are optimised for moderate displacement: Less weight and an L-shaped keel provide more stability in the risers, making it easy to steer even with a smaller crew. Due to the individual design, many solutions for up to 8 guests are possible.
Contest 72 CS
The Contest 72CS is ideal for owners who want to sail independently or with the support of a skipper and crew, due to the different, fully customisable layouts.
The design approach can prioritise blue water requirements with large stowage volume and adequate facilities, or racing performance with carbon fibre rigging and 3D sailing.
Contest 85 CS
The Contest 85 CS shows that the strong partnership with Studio Judel / Vrolijk combines design know-how and construction techniques to produce a hull that meets all sailing requirements.
The 26-metre Contest 85CS offers maximum individuality in the design of the interior and the choice of technical equipment.
