Short Description

Contest 29, 1968 

A fantastic, extremely solidly built yacht. Her long keel and heavy ballast enable her to tackle most sea states, on and offshore. 
Previous owners have had her fitted out to cruise the Med.

This Contest 29 is truly a fantastic example with original features.  If you are looking for a solidly built cruiser that is safe at sea and great value for money, then we strongly recommend viewing this yacht, she is an excellent example!
