Contest Yachts 33 Dutch Built

Price: AU $36,000 Now reduced
Good boat, well set up and maintained.
Built by Conyplex from Alkmaar in Holland and designed by Uus van Essen and Dick Zaal, FireFly is a very good example of the Contest 33. Contest Yachts were distributed through the USA and FireFly sailed across the Pacific without a hitch.
The current owner has been fastidious with the upkeep of the boat and FireFly ready to cruise again.
Despite its relative smaller size, the well designed layout, rig and design, make for a fast cruiser with good sized comfortable cockpit and good room and layout below.
Good instrumentation, including GPS and autopilot, extra sails, spares and general condition make FireFly the ideal 10m boat.
