Broker's Comments

The Achilles 24 is widely recognised as a proper sea-going pocket cruiser. Examples of her marque have competed in singlehanded AZAB's, OSTARS and have several ocean crossings to their credit. They are very popular in local racing fleets and give satisfying sailing for both cruising and racing owners.
Well designed and strongly built the Achilles 24 will take you and your crew anywhere that you dare to point her.
This yacht has many years of exciting and satisfying sailing left in her. She is keenly priced with her two Honda outboards purchased new in 2005. She also comes with an inflatable tender, recent sails, and the benefit of shoal draft triple keels for our drying harbours. She had a survey in April 2003 and should not be on the market for long.
