Broker's Comments

Boatshed Lancashire are please to offer this very well presented Achilles 24 Fin Keel with yard trailer.
As is evident from the pictures she has had money spent on her, from the respray and epoxy to the refit of the interior. A very deceiving boat on the amount of internal space. Please contact me for more information or to arrange a viewing.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Achilles 24 Fin Keel has been personally photographed and viewed by Simon of Boatshed Lancashire. Click here for contact details.
