Contest Yachts of Holland who are premiering two brand-new 50-foot models, the Contest 49CS and 50CS, at Boot Düsseldorf at the end of this month, are delighted to announce the expansion of their dealer network into the Far East with the key appointment of Hong Kong- based Asia Yacht Services as their new distributor for the region.

Contest Yachts CEO Arjen Conijn says, "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 long-standing reputation for top-level service, and our Contest yachts fit well with the company's strategic offering".

Bart Kimman says of the new arrangement, "We have long experience with good cruising sailboats and do so like the very personal nature of the way Contest work and the very high standards of production and customisation. We see great opportunities in our region. For our clients Contest is a phenomenal solution."
