Mekeia represents an incredible value for a very capable and
well proven blue water cruiser it is not often a boat of this caliber
and size being offered in this price range.
Contest is one of the largest and oldest family-run yards in the
world, and conducts the whole build process on site – a yard with a
rich past and a promising future.
Contest Yachts launched the 43 model in 1990 as their introduction to
world cruising sailors. In design and construction the Contest 43 is
unquestionably a powerful offshore, even deep-sea yacht. With easily
worked decks, a secure cockpit and rig, hydraulic main sail and genoa,
plus bowthruster, she is very manageable by a small crew. Her well
thought out 2 cabin-2 head layout provides lots of room and storage
for family and guests.With only 54 hulls produced, Mekeia, as
hull # 53, joins the hallmark short list of those looking for a
capable, large family cruiser or a substantial retirement cruising home.
