Founder of Conyplex and the adventurous pioneer of the big water was already standing before WW II at the cradle of sea sailing with “smaller yachts” and built his own ventur.
The first sailing cruiser build by Conyplex is the Contest 25. Provided with the dutch tulip; also the pride of a dutch national product.
A huge fire reduced the buildings of Conyplex to ashes. There were several sailing boats in the buildings that could no longer be saved. The damage ran into the millions and the fire brigade still has a long time to extinguish.
Contest Yachts 60 jaar
Since its inception sixty years ago, Contest Yachts has been at the forefront of the Dutch yacht building industry.
This is how the yard from Medemblik introduced serial construction of sailing yachts. “Every week we built a 25 ft in our factory.”
