The higher the climb through the range, the sleeker the generic Contest styling seems, and the 62CS presents a developed pretty profile with accented, soft angled, low rise, long glazed coachroof topping the powerful hull’s straight run sheerline. The two cockpit plan, with distinct working and social areas, and twin helm stations, hint at size, further confirmed by the hydraulically folding transom which reveals a tender garage and creates a full beam bathing and boarding platform.
Below the options for interior plan are many with the large central saloon at the centre of anything from three to five sleeping cabins with a variety of berth configurations from guest doubles and bunks to mirrored aft cabins in place of the usual and popular fully serviced, full-beam master suite.
Space abounds, filled by natural light from the many hatches, hull and panoramic windows®, and ventilation to all cabins.
