Hey, Rcoles, the boat you posted is not the Contest 36ft (as you have said) but the 35ft:

Crusader Yacht Sales (Annapolis, MD)

So, it is this one:

Contest 35s | Dick Zaal Yacht Design

Also designed by Dick Zall (1987). Both boats coexisted at the same time on the Contest line. This one is however a more modern design (5 years later) and you can see the difference in the hull form. The 35s is remarkably more modern. I also found it more beautiful.
