Together we make sailing ambitions a reality… so you can embrace your own personal dream.

The Contest World is one which sailors navigate and enjoy with ease. It is a world into which we at Contest Yachts invite our owners, friends and guests. To share, to travel and adventure, securely, safely in the knowledge that the yacht sailed is well set for such voyaging. Built well, with care, and supported by its constructor throughout its long life, be it first owned, second owned or more.

Arjen Conijn, director of Contest Yachts: 'In Medemblik we have built a knowledgeable, caring full service team that personally supports and serves owners whenever need arises. And with our increasingly international network of agents, help need not be far away. We design and build yachts for people with serious ambition. Ambition needs supporting... and that's what we do, through long lasting relationships, and also through changing ownership.'

Yachts to let you adventure, to fulfil your dreams.
At Contest Yachts we see sailing as a way of determining, expressing your own dreams and ambitions. Which is why we build not just high quality yachts. We build them with each owner’s highly personalised input. Performance yachts well set to sail the world’s oceans and fulfil personal dreams, ambitions, comfortably, safely.

Our yachts are built to enjoy equally coastal, offshore and bluewater exploration. In our half century history we have learned well the responsibilities and requirements of successful long-stay sailing. Using the best of materials, hand crafting and innovative technology, we work closely with each and every owner to design, build and deliver well sorted, strong, light, seakindly, easily handled, performance distance cruisers.

    New pavilion location at the heart of the show with a fleet of top Dutch superyachts

    With a record market share and more orders than ever on its books, the Dutch superyacht sector is booming. The presentations at this year’s Monaco show by members of the Holland Yachting Group – yards, suppliers & partners alike – reflect the confidence of these leading exponents of their craft. If you’re attending the show between now and Saturday, a visit to the new Holland Pavilion and the displays by the top yards will surely be among the high points.

    The renowned Holland Pavilion, one of the main hubs of activity at every Monaco show, has been moved to an prime new location at the heart of this year’s event. Enter via the Darse Sud tent and you will find the Dutch gathered together next to T-central (QS39).

    The pavilion will be home to leader firms such as Cramm, DGI Sypack, Port of Amsterdam, Hydromar, Naiad Dynamics, Rondal and VBH. Other members are at other strategic locations around the show, including Amels, Oceanco, Royal Huisman, Vitters, Mulder Shipyard, Wajer Yachts,  Caterpillar (Pon Power), Esthec, Lanka Marble and Maxwell Marine.

    Besides various superyachts will be on display around the show, which include the 81-metre Feadship Air and Oceanco’s recently delivered 90-metre DAR. Heesen is giving a world premiere to the 51-metre Irisha, AMELS has three of its fleet in Monaco: the Amels 180 EJI, the 55-metre KAMALAYA and the 57.7-metre VOLPINI 2, while sister-company DAMEN hosts the 55.5-metre Yacht Support vessel POWER PLAY. Last but not least, the two latest launches from Moonen’s Caribbean line are making their mark in Monaco - the 30-metre Bijoux and 36-metre Brigadoon.

    Returning to the Holland Pavilion, another stand well worth a visit is the Port of Amsterdam presentation on how the Dutch capital city is shaping up as a destination for superyachts. Port of Amsterdam and HISWA Holland Yachting Group are making real their ambition to establish Amsterdam more firmly as a major destination for superyachts. The diversity in

    berths located in the heart of the city Centre, combined with excellent refit and maintenance facilities in the port area, make Amsterdam a unique destination for superyachts. Read more about these developments here and drop by the Port of Amsterdam stand to discuss the possibilities.
