We are proud to label this boat sold. Bahamas, here she comes!!



Andy from pop yachts was not only very upbeat and positive every step of the way. But he also knew the boat he was showing. Most other brokers mix up info from other boats they have shown or have to check the same web post on their phone that I could do myself. But Andy came ready with a deep understanding of the boats history and let me know all the positives but also made me aware of things to be cautious about. Andy made this stressful process easy and painless. As if that wasn't enough the other team memebers were all on top of everything and helped me fully understand every step of the process. - Douglas Rowland of the Sailing Brothers

1976 Contest 34 Sloop Sailboat in Clearwater, Florida

Stock #135149

Solid built all fiberglass hull design. A family-owned company, Contest Yachts are known worldwide for quality construction as perfect liveaboard cruisers. This fine example has been loved by the current owners for over 21 years.

Powered by a Volvo Penta inboard diesel, the motor had a complete overhaul in 2004. At that time, a factory, closed cooling system was installed. She starts every time and purrs away and uses less than a gallon/hour at a 5.8 knot cruise speed.

The spacious cockpit creates a wonderful lounge area while cruising, at your favorite dock or on the hook. Shade provided by the newer bimini top or dodger.

Smooth winches, solid rigging, and stanchions all appear in great shape. A fold-down swim ladder and stainless steel dinghy davits are at the transom.

A few steps down the companionway greet you with the wide and open salon with beautiful dark wood interior and soft, natural lighting with hatches and side windows.

Dual settees convert to sleeping berths with extension boards(pictured stored and pulled out).

The table extends when eating or entertaining. The chart table is to starboard with stereo and other electronics. The galley is to port with a gimbaled propane stove and oven. There is a deep basin sink and icebox.

The microwave runs off the 1000 watt inverter and is stored in a cabinet out of sight.

The aft cabin offers two single berths and a sink. Storage under both berths reveals spare sails. Cushions to be added if needed.

The battery bank, switch, inverter and battery charger all located in here. There is a 1/0 wire for an electric windlass run from the batteries to the v-berth for a future installed if needed.

The head is forward with manual flush toilet, nice counter space and storage under the sink and behind. Over to starboard is a nice sized hanging locker and multiple drawers.

The forward v-berth is over 6 feet wide and 6 feet 7 inches deep. The filler cushion is removable to reveal storage underneath.

Tankage includes:

40-gallon stainless steel fuel tank
Two 50 gallon stainless steel water tanks
Plastic holding/waste tank.
