£152.99    (Inc. UK VAT @ 20%)(£127.49 Exc. VAT)

The No. 1 sailboat compass worldwide: double reading, large crisp card and great looks in the cockpit. The Contest 101 is the benchmark-compass in the Plastimo range.

When Plastimo invented the double reading compass, it was a major innovation which allowed sailors to follow their course from the cockpit and the cabin.

The Contest® 101 goes a step further:  its exclusive mounting possibilities on any bulkhead - whatever the thickness - and its aesthetics allow the Contest® 101 to adapt perfectly to today's yachts, both in terms of engineering and glamorous design.
