Broker Remarks

This Contest 29 for sale is a great little yacht; extremely solidly built and with her heavy ballast long keel she can tackle most sea states and is happy offshore.
Previous owners have had her fitted out to cruise the Med, as you expect she has lots of extras such as sails in 2010 and still in good order, entirely stripped and re-varnished mast in 2010, Jabsco holding tank and Propex heating system, for when she is here in the UK.
The current owner has had the gas installation inspected, pipes refitted in 2009 & the cooker serviced.
She had a new Beta Marine 14hp diesel engine in 2002 and has had regular services.
This Contest 29 is indeed a fantastic example with all original features; she had the topsides and decks re-painted in 2010 along with the cockpit, grab rails, mast & boom re-varnished, she has also had a new Gebo forehatch fitted in 2010, which looks great.
If you are looking for a solidly built cruiser that is safe at sea, with a reliable engine and great value for money, then I strongly recommend viewing this yacht, she offers good value for money!
