Contest Yachts is delighted to announce that the newly launched 17-metre Contest 55CS has been nominated in the Luxury Cruiser section of the European Yacht of the Year 2021. Of the dozens of new sailboats launched yearly, only the exceptional receive such recognition for this most prestigious of yachting awards.
The sailing trials took place over the last weekend in August, in Kiel, Germany, with the winners set to be announced next January in Düsseldorf 2021. This is in the same halls where just 12 months before, this sweetly lined, luxurious, Lloyd’s certified bluewater beauty, drawn by judel/vrolijk, made her acclaimed debut.
These ‘Oscars of Yachting’, judged by Europe’s top yachting magazine writers from more a dozen nations, have also previously been enjoyed by Contest Yachts. The ingenious Contest 42CS won the same Luxury Cruiser category in her year of launch, too.
