Contest Yachts, based in Medemblik, north of Amsterdam, has expanded its dealer network into the Far East by appointing Hong Kong-based Asia Yacht Services as its new distributor for Asia.
Arjen Conijn, CEO of Contest Yachts, said: “We have worked previously with Asia Yacht Services’ CEO Bart Kimman and are delighted to reconnect in this new relationship. Asia Yacht Services is a high-profile, multi-brand dealership with a long-standing reputation for top-level service, and our Contest yachts fit well with the company’s strategic offering.”
Kimman added: “We have a long experience with good cruising sailboats and like the very personal nature of the way Contest works and the very high standards of production and customisation. We see great opportunities in our region. For our clients, Contest is a phenomenal solution.”
Contest Yachts is staging the premieres of the Contest 49CS and 50CS sailing yachts at Boot Düsseldorf (Hall 16, stand C54) from January 21-29. The Dutch yard builds both sailing and motor yachts.
