Broker's Comments

The well known Achilles brand means a reputation for toughness and sea keeping values .
She is clean and tidy, ready to sail away.
Many retrofits and upgrades mean this well equipped home finished craft is very well equipped and with a relatively recent new engine and a good suit of sails she is ready to use for the season right now.

Offered at an incredibly good price as the owner wishes to move on to a larger boat this is one not to be missed if you are looking for a real bargain and a super starter boat.

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