Broker's Comments

A really lovely classic sailing boat beautifully looked after by a fastidious owner for the last 8 years
The Arpege was one of the first production cruiser-racers to really go for wide beam to gain interior volume, and one of the reasons it quickly became so popular was that this did not hurt its sailing performance - in fact for several years Arpeges were very competitive racers. Now they make excellent low-budget fast cruisers.
A very clever layout with lots of storage behind excellent quality woodwork.
All maintenance has been carried out over the winter every year without fail, and the keel has had five coats of epoxy paint applied , then has been copper antifouled.
This is the deep keel version and would either suit a family or crew for coastal sailing and she deserves another owner who will continue to cherish her.
