The Contest 33 is a well-designed and fast family cruiser with good performance and a comfortable interior. 'Trilogy' has been exceptionally well maintained by a couple who has lived aboard her for the last several years cruising the Caribbean and making enhancements to their beautiful vessel along the way. Unfortunately, family health issues have necessitated that they return home and thus they have reluctantly put Trilogy on the market.

When we first saw Trilogy, she was like a diamond in the rough, but we fell in love immediately. We made her shine again like the diamond she is today, a safe reliable Bluewater cruiser. Trilogy is fully-equipped and ready to cruise, we hope to find enthusiastic sailors who will love and enjoy Trilogy like we do and will have amazing adventures with her.
