Contest 48 "Mezzanotte" is a true example of a classic blue water cruiser. Build to Lloyds specifications in 1991, she is ready to sail the world's oceans for many years to come. In 2016 she was fittted with a complete new teak deck and all deck hatches were renewed. Furthermore, standing and running rig were replaced in 2008 and mast and boom were completely repainted, as well as the hull. Throughout the years her owner has not been shy when it came to the upkeep of "Mezzanotte". Due to her spacious interior layout with 3 cabins and large heads, she offers a comfortable stay on board for 6 persons. She is easily sailed single handed from the cockpit. "Mezzanotte" is ready for some new adventures with her new owner. Please contact us for further information. Preliminary brochure! Inspection and viewing possible in Porto Vecchio, Corsica.
