Broker's Comments

The well proven Achilles 24, designed by Oliver Lee and built by Butler Mouldings at Gowerton. The hulll form is from the very successful Ajax 23 keelboat. In fact the Achilles 24 has been described as ‘an Ajax with a lid on’!
This particular boat has just been refitted at a cost of £3,000, with lots of new equipment added.
The Achilles 24 is a great little cruising boat with a very good reputation as being a joy to sail. This one is the triple keel version offering the ability of shallow draft exploring and the ability to dry out.
Very good value for money.
