Drenched in a rich heritage, Contest Yachts quickly built a strong reputation for themselves and have maintained that momentum throughout the last 55 years of family ownership. From co developing the wing keel for America’s Cup sailing yachts in 1979, to winning the prestigious European Yacht of the Year award in 2014, Contest is no stranger to innovation and accolades.
Award-winning and ground-breaking yachts deserve the absolute best in finishes to bring out their impressive lines while tailoring to the owner’s desires of cruising, short-handing or racing. Contest Yachts has shown preference for the complete ALEXSEAL system when it comes to fairing, priming and finishing their strong, but lightweight yachts. Contest’s Foreman of Exterior Paint, Colin Mason has praised ALEXSEAL product performance and technical support. Not only has his team been able to achieve beautiful finishes with ALEXSEAL, but the coatings system has provided Contest owners with great peace of mind for longevity and wear-resistance.
