A stand out boat in so many ways, the Contest 52MC is Contest Yacht’s first ever motor boat and a spectacularly successful design. The press can’t get enough of her, loving her looks and her handling which they say astounds, her innovative, half-planing hull riding as though on rails, tracking straight and staying flat right through the tightest of turns. With power options from twin 350hp to 550hp diesels she’s equally comfortable at 8 or 28 knots, and soft rides through the nastiest chop. And she’s a dry boat, her pronounced spray rails cascading the breaking water away.
The joint creation of longstanding design partner Georg Nissen, the well know motor boat engineering and designer company Vripack and the yard’s own in-house design team, the 52MC is also an unusually versatile performance platform, available in sedan, open sport and a flybridge version. Interior layouts are customisable, too, building out of a raised saloon and two heads, three sleeping cabin standard plan.
