Broker's Comments

'Well balanced, quick and easily handled' was the Yachting Monthly verdict when they trialled the Arpege in April 2005. 'A modern classic' was Tom Cunliffe's opinion of the marque.
An innovative fast cruiser racer, in her day the French led the field in producing modern, fast and seaworthy yachts. It took at least ten years for British builders to catch up and in the meantime many went out of business. She is a design that should appeal to anyone looking for a fast cruiser with well thought out sea going accommodation. She benefits from a recent diesel engine and updated electronics. These boat details are subject to contract.
