The  KIRIN is an excellent example of the CONTEST 36S model that was first introduced in 1984. Built by the renowned CONYPLEX of Holland, that Company's long-term tradition and reputation of building top-notch sailing yachts since 1960 was certainly further enhanced.  The new "C36S" was the first of the true performance-oriented designs offered for the benefit of cruising sailors who desired this modern benefit as available with up-to-date hull shapes, sail plans and manufacturing techniques and materials. The CONTEST 36S was constructed with a balsa-core hull, one of the first in Europe to do so along with other models by BALTIC of Finland. With her aggressive sail plan, the C36S was an overnight success on & off the race course and set new standards for the popular "cruiser-racer" classification that combined structural integrity and high levels of interior joinery fit & finish that Dutch builders are famous for both then and now!

The KIRIN is hull #209 and was produced in the Fall of 1984 as a 1985 model. She has had only four Owners to the present date. Purchased by her present Owner in the Summer of 2008, the KIRIN has continued to be both lightly-used as well as thoughtfully maintained. The innate qualities of build, performance and "features & benefits" of the CONTEST 36S are the principle characteristics that have served to attract sailors over the years who desire an offshore-capable yacht with a modern rig & deck plan, a roomy aft-cabin interior and good performance too.

The KIRIN is offered for brokerage sale as her Owner's boating plans .. and time available for use .. have changed. All in all, she represents a very nice package that is difficult to replicate and acquire in today's market and in this price range. The KIRIN was not commissioned for the 2017 Season and is currently stored "on the hard", rig out & awaiting inspections.
