Broker's Comments

The Contest 29 has proven itself over many miles and years. Sturdily constructed as a no nonsense cruiser, this example has been particularly well maintained with some extensive interior refurbishment. All the equipment appears in good order and she is still being used regularly. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
