Location Change – Contest 40S ‘Siara’

Contest 40S

The Contest 40S ‘Siara’ is now laid-up ashore for the winter on the Gareloch, easily accessible from Glasgow Airport. She is wintering ashore with her full winter cover fitted, viewing by prior appointment.

The Contest 40S marked a step towards performance cruising from the earlier Contest designs. Designed to maximise her hull speed while being predictable and easy for the crew to handle under sail with comfortable accommodation below decks. Lower and finer shape set the future look of Contest designs for the coming decades.

Still with her original owner SIARA was commission to his own, blue water specification with additions to the standard specification specifically to enhance life aboard while on passage. Since her launch SIARA has completed several transatlantic passages, cruising the Caribbean and the eastern seaboard of America extensively as well as those waters closer to home. Professionally maintained and upgraded throughout her life she is well presented with a good inventory including recently fitted Raymarine plotter, recent standing rigging and a comprehensive sail wardrobe. She is a must see boat for those with blue water ambitions.
