OSSENZIJL– Vri-Jon DSA Yachts, maker of luxury steel motor yachts from 9 to 15m (30 to 50ft.) in 3 brands, has extended its Contessa line. It is now finishing the first 42 ft. Contessa Open Cockpit that will be available for delivery this fall.

The yard says it will also soon add a convertible version of the Contessa-42. “A yacht with the same luxury and comfort as the other Contessas but where you experience the feeling of the outdoors,” says shipyard director Patrick Jonas. He also makes the Classic line and one-offs.

“As the name ‘convertible’ indicates, the hood over the outside steering position can be removed completely and then you’ll steer in the open air”.

The Cabrio is built in steel on the same platform as the Open Cockpit and Aft Cabin versions of the Contessa line.

The Contessa-42 OC is 12.46m long, has a beam of 4.20m and a draft of 1.10m. It comes standard with a 110HP Volvo Penta D3 diesel and displaces 15 tons. The yacht has 2 cabins, 4 fixed berths + 2 extra.

Since 1984, Vri-Jon DSA Yachts has built more than 250 yachts.
