Delivered in July 2017 by the well-established Dutch yard Contest Yachts, the 21.71m (71'2) Famous Four is straight out of the yard and offered for sale at a very competitive price. She is the latest addition to the Contest fleet and is top of her class Dutch pedigree.

Famous Four has been designed with long slim hull lines to allow moderate displacement cruising with sharper sections for enhanced upwind performance. Combined with slightly wider, flatter aft sections, greater stability and improved downwind is achieved.

Uncluttered and spacious exterior decks provide a sheltered cockpit as well as ample room for dining and lounging forward. Inside, her pristine and contemporary interior design along with her unique layout means that the central area of the saloon is kept free providing a sense of spaciousness and openness.

Her well thought-out arrangement optimises the space available for accommodating guests. Famous Four sleeps up to six guests in three ensuite cabins, including the full beam owner’s quarters aft and two double staterooms located forward. There is also accommodation for a crew of two on board.

Boasting a major discount to her contract price, Famous Fourpresents a magnificent opportunity to acquire a brand new and high spec, high performance cruiser.
