Broker's Comments

This delightful Achilles 24 has and continues to receive a lot of love and attention by its current owner. A very well presented example of this popular trailer/sailer, she is versatile and capable. Please note, some exterior pictures are prior to the coachline being repainted and some are after completion, the main picture being the most recent

Below is a list of work carried out of late:
Complete refurbishment of the road trailer in 2013. The trailer has not been in the water since
Re-fitting the interior
Fitting new guard wires
Fitting new bobbins to the Tabernacle
Fitting bushes in the mast halyard pulleys
Recently valeted the most used sails
Keel bolts replaced in 2014
Recently constructed Gin Pole mast raising system and mast support

This is a well priced boat that with its trailer gives a wide variety of options. Her total weight (including braked trailer is just under 1800Kg so is well within the towing capacity of most small SUVs. She must be seen to be believed and prospective buyers will not be disappointed.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
