This is a fine example of the formidable and highly regarded-world cruising Contest Yachts.

Founded by Ed Conijn..... Conyplex launched its first cruising yacht in 1959, the Contest 25. This design was an immediate international success and served as the foundation of the company.

Under the guidance of Fritz Conijn, Ed's son, Conyplex grew into a yacht builder of global stature, and the emphasis shifted from serial building to semi-customised yachts between 40 and 65 feet. Together with Marcel Borgmann, Arjen Conijn became the third generation of the family to take over the helm of the company.
