Broker's Comments

Designed by Michel Dufour in 1966, the Arpege was for its time revolutionary, with nearly ten foot beam on a 30 foot hull. This allowed six berths to fit in without using the forepeak, which was left for sail stowage and the heads.
Two keels were used, the more common shallow fin having 4' 5" draught, with an exaggerated swept back bulb at the base. The other keel is a fairly conventional deeper fin keel. The narrow rudder has a deep narrow full length skeg. Both keel types provide very good performance, although the deeper keel will have the edge to windward.

The hull has tumblehome amidships, and quite a fine bow and stern. A few early boats had a stubby counter, but this was changed quite early to a retrousse stern. The cockpit has no lockers, but there is a lazarette reached through a big hatch, providing ample storage for fenders and warps. There are cave storage areas beneath the sheet winches to provide some cockpit storage.
