Broker's Comments

Achilles 840's are excellent family cruisers which can also show respectable results around the club cans. This one is sound and benefits from a new engine in 2004 which has only seen one seasons use. She has not been sailed for a couple of years so needs tidying up but is offered at a price to reflect this. These boats have plenty of Atlantic crossings to boast their seagoing credentials and this fin keel version will make someone a fine yacht.
These boat details are subject to contract.
