Contest 42 Ketch
The Eleonor, a by Dick Zaal designed first build of a total of 30 built Contest 42 ketch ships is impressive. The ship is huge robust and is extremely heavy build in full polyester and is wonderfully complete. The current owners have made an 8-year world trip with this ship and the ship is, with some minor modifications, still suitable to do a long trip again. She easily combines her good sailing capacity with a lot of comfort and is under all circumstances easy to manoeuvre. The ship is well maintained and has a classic and warm teak interior. There is a lot renewed on the ship before and during the world tour. The complete standing rigg was replaced in 1993 by an heavy duty rigg. The mast base is hereby fully restored and improved, a longtime Contest problem is thus a thing of the past. All Lead Sails were replaced in 2003. The large spacious center cockpit provides easy accommodation up to six adults and is sheltered by the fixed aluminum windows. The underwater ship is treated with 6 layers of epoxy, and the hull is beautifully painted with a 2-component lacquer in 2010. Also then the old teak deck is completely removed and returned to the original deklayout. Inside she offers with her 4 cabins and seven fixed and two additional beds a lot of living and sleeping space. All upholstery and cushions were replaced in 2004. The from inside accessible owner's cabin is spacious and has ample storage space. The galley is well equipped. There is even a workshop with headroom on board. In the front and a double cabin and in the hallway to the master cabin lies a double stack cage. The engine was overhauled in 1994, the exact number of operating hours is not known. In short an ideal ship for a new large trip or for live-aboards. The illustrated sailingdinghy may be taken over. VAT paid.
