|Engine Type||Single Inboard|
From the renowned yard of Contest Conyplex in Holland, the Contest 35 is well built, with an innovative design. Having spent most of her life on Lake Michigan, "Serenity" is in excellent condition. Her roomy and functional interior provides the space of a much larger vessel.
Besides providing comfortable accommodations, this boat will sail well, too. Quality construction techniques are used throughout. Serenity has stainless steel tanks, and all her furniture and bulkheads are glassed and tabbed in place.
The interior is gorgeous and clean. The bilge is also clean. There's a newer Volvo engine, upgraded Halsey Lidgard Sails, a Wave-Stopper Rigid dodger, and more. All the systems are tidy on "Serenity".
This yacht provides excellent quality and ample space, at an affordable price. Indeed, this is a very rare boat to have here, on the West Coast. Not so in Europe, where the Contest 35 is popular, and proven.
