Broker's Comments

Don't let the name Achilles fool you. This boat hasn't got a bad heel to slow her down for with a cruising speed of 5 knots and a maximum of 7 she's no slouch!
With Achilles being the son of the sea-nymph Thetis, surely the gods will be on your side too!
The yacht herself has been lovingly looked after with lots of time and money spent on her.
She comes with brand new sails and a new trailer; all ready to go.
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.
