The Contest 84CS is the first sailing yacht over 80 feet to be built by Contest Yachts and marks a new direction for the Dutch shipyard.


Contest Yachts has now entered the sailing superyacht market with the Contest 84CS.

The 84 foot vessel has been designed in partnership with the German naval architects judel/vrolijk & co.

The vessel is equipped for both long distance cruising and racing.

Up to 10 guests can be accommodated on the superyacht. Below deck, there are five cabins and five heads for guests.

There are two further cabins for up to four crew, along with a galley. Both can be fully enclosed for extra privacy.

Owners can specify either an aft or forward master suite, with service quarters also changing ends.

The interior of the sailing yacht is described as “modern-classic” and has been designed by Wetzels Brown Partners of Amsterdam.

The company has worked closely with Contest Yachts since the launch of the Contest 72CS in 2012.

Like the judel/vrolijk designed Contest 67CS, the hull of the Contest 84CS has a moderate-shallow underbody running back from the plumb bow.

It has an integral bowsprit and optional furling asymmetrical spinnaker, as well as a soft chined, broad stern with twin rudders for precise yet light control at the twin helm stations.

Owners can choose to have the master suite forward


Attention has also been paid to noise and vibration; the engine room has the latest in sound insulation. There is also a dedicated technical room.

A large lazarette can house a compressor and toys, while a sizeable RIB can be stowed in the foredeck tender well.

The Contest 84CS is the flagship in this new range of eight yachts, which includes the 16 metre Contest 52MC motor cruiser.

The sailing superyacht will be launched in 2018.

The family-run Contest Yachts is known for its coastal and blue water sailing yachts.
