Hi there,
I wonder if you could give some idea about the quality of a Contest 55CS (2004) yacht as I can't find any material,.. like reviews, info, tests... I know that they're very well known for the vacuum infusion process, and they advertise that superior build quality... But apart from that how do you rate them comparing to a Hallberg-Rassy 54 or a Oyster 56?? in terms of sailing performance, handling, balance, components...?
The hull was designed somewhere in 95-96 and the LWL and wing keel doesn't impress me... does the wing keel bring any better performance or qualities?
Cheers,

Carlos
