Contest 84CS flagship yacht in build

The first model in the Contest 84CS sailing yacht series is under construction, the Dutch yard announced at this year's Cannes Yachting Festival.

This 26 metre composite sailing yacht will become the flagship of the range when it is launched in 2018. Contest Yachts anticipates that it will appeal to long-distance cruisers and regatta racers alike.

This semi-custom yacht will come with modern-classic interiors by Wetzels Brown Partners of Amsterdam, who have already styled the current Contest flagship PH3, which launched in 2012.

The hull form is based on the successful Contest 67CS, which naval architect firm Judel Vrolijk & Co has extended with a moderate-shallow underbody running back from the lightly raked bow to a soft-chined, broad stern. Twin rudders will provide precise, powerful and light control from the twin helm stations.

The layout will be semi-customisable, with owners able to choose either an aft or a forward master cabin configuration. Five guest cabins and five heads compartments mean a maximum capacity of ten guests. Privacy will be paramount with a fully enclosable galley and crew quarters for a staff of up to four.

Since silence is the ultimate luxury in yachting, Contest has paid particular attention to reducing noise and vibration throughout, with high levels of sound insulation fitted to the engine room. Storage comes in the form of a large lazarette, which can swallow up a compressor and all manner of superyacht water toys, while the tender garage is situated under the fordeck.

Pre-construction tooling for this composite sailing yacht recently began at Contest Yachts’ Medemblik facility, and the yard added that the first 84CS will be build to Lloyd’s Register standards.
