Broker's Comments

I have always admired the Achilles 9metre. They look as good as they sail, the design was years ahead of is time when it first appeared in the 70’s, and they still look sleek and modern even against today’s boats. She is currently in commission and being used which is why she looks a little cluttered down below as currently all of her equipment is on board. Beneath this is very good upholstery which appears quite new, well attached head linings and the boat was dry throughout with no signs of any leaks. With a couple of weekends giving the boat a once over to get her ready for next season, she will make somebody a fine performance cruiser.
