2010 Contest Yachts 57CS

Boat Overview

Boat Description

With the construction of an entirely new 57-footer, Contest Yachts in the Netherlands is adding another exciting and innovative yacht to its portfolio of fast luxury performance cruisers. 

Flush deck and integrated superstructure
The golden jubilee of Contest Yachts is being celebrated with a brand-new model. “After the introduction of our highly successful 62-footer, there were specific requests from potential clients for a similar but slightly smaller yacht,” explains Director Arjen Conijn. “In response to these market demands, designer Georg Nissen and the Contest yard rose to the challenge of translating the attractive elements of the bigger sister into a 57-footer.” 

With its flush deck and low, integrated superstructure, the appearance of the Contest 57CS  is both modern and elegant. The characteristic windows that allow daylight to flood into the interior are also included in the design of the 57-footer. This results in a very pleasant atmosphere below deck, while the spacious cockpit has a twin steering position and free passage to the interior. One of many optional features is an integrated swim platform, and the smart operational concept allows the vessel to be sailed singlehandedly if necessary.  

“In addition to quality, comfort and design our clients are increasingly focused on performance,” Conijn continues. “Our starting point is that Contest yachts should provide a superior performance in both easy and difficult conditions. Without compromising on quality and comfort levels, we have managed to design a relatively lightweight vessel that sails superbly. As countless independent test results have shown, our existing yachts are a fine example of the success of our approach and all these positive characteristics have been used in the design of the Contest 57CS. We expect a great deal from this latest addition to the Contest fleet.” 

The Contest 57CS consists of a sandwich construction built with the vacuum injection method. This gives a lighter and stronger yacht than the traditional hand lay-up method. The yacht is also equipped with a modern rigging system, allowing a gennaker or a code zero to be controlled with a removable bowsprit.  

Semi-custom built
As a semi-custom yacht, the Contest 57CS offers clients various interior options. The layout and materials are based on the new style that was developed in cooperation with interior designer Birgit Schnaase and incorporated by the yard several years ago. Features include lots of light, space and comfort in the lounge area and throughout the interior. The fact that the yachts are still built completely in-house by Contest Yachts and that the yard carries out constant quality checks guarantee the exceptional finish that Contest clients have become accustomed to. 

The new Contest 57CS design reinforces the Contest Yachts motto of Life. Style. Sailing.
