Review of Contest 33

Basic specs..

The Contest 33 has been built with more than one type of keel. One option is a long keel. A long keel provide a better directional stability than a similar boat with a fin keel; on the other hand, better directional stability means also that the boat is more difficult to handle in a harbour with less space. Another option is a finn keel. A boat with a fin keel is more manoeuvrable but has less directional stability than a similar boat with a long keel.

The boat can enter most marinas as the draft is just about 1.67 - 1.77 meter (5.48 - 5.78 ft) dependent on the load. See immersion rate below.

Contest 33 is typically equipped with an inboard Volvo Penta MD2B diesel engine at 25.0 hp (18 kW).

Sailing characteristics

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level. The immersion rate for Contest 33 is about 200 kg/cm, alternatively 1124 lbs/inch. Meaning: if you load 200 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternatively, if you load 1124 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.

Yachting Monthly cover

  • July 9, 2009

One of the last and largest of the van Essen Contests, she enjoyed some success in this country. Rated a fast cruising yacht rather than a cruiser-racer, she is well mannered, easy on the helm and reasonably quick. Fine ends and a modest beam mean comparatively small accommodation, laid out in typical early 1970s style. The galley is cramped and the original cooker inadequate, while the gas locker was hazardous.

LOA 32ft 4in (9.83m), LWL 25ft 11 in (7.90m), beam 10ft 4in (3.15m), draught 4ft 11 in (1.5Dm), displacement 9,3691b (4,250kg). Price guide: £14,000 to £22,000. YM Test Report February 1972.

Saloon with settee berths to port and starboard, folding dining table and stowage outboard.

Hi. Looking st a 1971 Contest 33 tomorrow. Any opinions on these boats?...I've read an old magazine review which was very positive especially on build quality. How about room/accommodation below...? Any problems to look out for? And just general thoughts Thanks

I've never owned one, but sailed two belonging to friends, one with a stern cockpit and one centre. Definitely well built and 'solid', probably not the fastest, but no slouches either and great offshore and/or in rough weather; not so great for manouvering inside tight marinas, though far from being the worst at that either, they were certainly better than either our Vega or Challenger. Accomodation wise I recall them being very much to the 1970's 'standard' layout with the stern cockpit one feeling 'roomier' than the equivalent Rival/Nic 32/34, but I couldn't live long with the centre cockpit version; a too small stern cabin to be comfortable in and everything else squeezed-up to accomodate it. If I was in the market for that size/type of yacht, it'd be high on my list of boats to look out for and using the same comparatives, I'd choose a stern cockpit Contest in preference to the Rival or Nicholson.

+ 1 for Neil's blog and get in touch with home I am sure he will assist  

Re: Contest 33 - any opinions? Too long ago to advise on spec. but there was one racing from Belfast Lough in the 70s, Tormentor, red and white hull, she was regarded as a big and expensive boat at the time and in offshore races was very much one of the boats to beat. So for her time she was fast and highly regarded.

Contest Yachts - Conyplex

Founded by Ed Conijn, owner of a timber yard, who decided to try his hand at building boats. After gaining experience in buildling dinghys, 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.
