Broker's Comments

The Achilles 24 are well known in this area having been built locally. She is a very rewarding boat to sail. This boat has not been used for a couple of years as she has been stored in a boat yard.
Her window could do with being replaced and she could do with a bit of cleaning and tidying. She is the triple keel version, which offers the opportunity for the boat to dry out in harbours and moorings or on beaches.
She represents good value for money for anybody requiring a starter boat or will give someone the opportunity to purchase a boat from a well represented class.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Achilles 24 has been personally photographed and viewed by Keith on 07968 375172 of Boatshed Wales. Click here for contact details.
