Broker’s Comments

From Conyplex in the Netherlands – this is a great example of the Dick Zaal designed Contest 44CS. She is a very capable bluewater yacht. Her stoutness of build and craftsman quality of finish are designed to produce a yacht to cruise in both comfort and safety. On deck, she sports an easily managed masthead sloop rig with all the deck equipment reassuringly robust. Below decks she sports a bright and airy saloon spacious galley and two very appointed cabins both en-suite. Ample stowage both above and below decks. Still in her first ownership and it is apparent the yacht has been a well-loved family member, continually maintained and updated.

Owner’s Comments

In 2003, we cruised around Britain before setting off for the Mediterranean in 2004. For 3 years, we were based in Palma de Mallorca – exploring the Balearic Islands. We then spent 2 years based in Italy cruising around Corsica and Sardinia.

Onward to Corfu. A year was spent visiting Albania, Montenegro and Croatia before settling in to life in the Ionian.

After 5 glorious years including, a magical circumnavigation of the Peloponnese, we decided to head further east across the Aegean to Turkey. The last 5 years have been spent exploring the wonderful Turkish coastline from Bodrum to Antalya. TRUMPETER was transported by ship back to Southampton from Fethiye in Turkey, arriving August 2020. TRUMPETER has been very much loved and we will be very sorry to part company. She has been a delight to sail in comfort and utmost safety.
