Jeff_H I would suggest that the Contest 30 is still a reasonable coastal cruiser but they would not be very offshore capable.

My family owned an earlier Contest 25. While nicely finished and cleverly dteailed, the overall design and build quailty of these early Contests just was not all that great and they are now nearly 40 years old.
