Contest 36S

The 36S is a substantial, aftcockpit cruising yacht with high topsides and semi-fl ush decks, which appeared in the mid- 1980s. She was designed for serious seagoing both above and below decks. Performance is not special but better than her predecessor. The saloon looks small but has lots of stowage. The heads is forward and the forecabin is decidedly cramped. There is a large aftercabin, though, a good galley and huge chart table.
