Broker's Comments

This Achilles is among the most regularly maintained boats I have come across. The owner has been very conscientious in his maintenance regime and it shows.
Well equipped and with a recent engine she is ready to sail away right now.
These may not be the fastest boats on the water however they are very capable and will look after you when it's needed. Uprated to in mast furling she is easily sailed single or short handed.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
