After three glorious years sailing in the Mediterranean we have finally, reluctantly, decided not to sail Isabella home to Australia but to sell her in Europe. A difficult decision but someone is going to benefit from all the gear we have added to ready her for the trip. We started off from a pretty good base since she was already well equipped for the ocean. So if you want to buy a lightly used, superbly maintained, excellently equipped Contest 43 (1993) then you've come to the right place.
The Contest 43 is an outstanding cruising yacht, built to the highest standards and equipped to go anywhere in comfort and safety.
