The Contest 43 is well known by the long distance sailors for its build quality. its centre cockpit adds to the all round safe and solid feel with benefit of solid cockpit screen and fixed hardtop over the companionway area.
Below deck the woodwork is of superb craftsmanship giving that feel of excellent build.
The centre cockpit layout gives way to a large and luxurious aft cabin with on suit head, especially for 43 ft LOA. The Saloon area and galley are well proportioned and good layout. The forward cabin also combines with a on suit head.
The Contest has been with the same owner for many years, however unforeseen circumstances means the boat is now offered for sale.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
