This venerable blue water cruiser was built in Holland by Conyplex Marine and designed by Dick Zaal.  Contest Yachts offer a very high-end build quality, and this center cockpit ketch is no exception.   The builder is well known in Europe for their offshore designs that are perfectly suited for long range cruising.   All Contest Yachts are built to Lloyds standards.  
"Borne Free" is a real head turner with her classic lines and a decadent teak interior.  Her balanced sail plan is easy to manage and comfortable in heavy seas.  
This handsome ketch has undergone an almost complete restoration over the past 5 years.  Her owners have poured their heart and soul into transforming this stunning cruiser into one of the prettiest and best-equipped boats on the market today.  
If you are unfamiliar with the Contest brand, their level of quality is similar to that of Sabre Yachts and Hallberg Rassy.  
This vessel is loaded with new and upgraded equipment.  See the full specs for the complete details.
