31' Conyplex 1982 - Contest 31 HT - YS190047

Actual Condition

It is reported that the Contest 31 HT developed a serious crack in the cast iron keel which was discovered when the boat was last hauled. Our clients have decided to repair the crack (epoxy fill and bronze strapping) in the hull and the vessel is currently on a mooring in Winthrop, MA. The owners are still decided that the time has come to bring her to market.

The Contest 31 HT is a classic vessel equipped with all the amenities you will need for a sloop sailboat. It is reported she has plenty of head room in the 6’ 4” cabin to maneuver; with a teak finish she is certainly pleasant. She offers a V-berth, double and single berth in the main cabin and a single quarter-berth. There is a shower in the head with closable doors to a V-berth and main cabin.

In the galley, you will find a propane stove with oven, foot pump for the use of the sink, icebox and hot and cold pressure water systems. There is a list of details found below. Overall, for her age, she was kept up and still a great vessel for someone looking to give her a little TLC. Send in your offers!
