Broker's Comments

The Achilles 24 is always a keenly sought after cruiser/racer locally. She performs well around the cans, often taking line honours from larger yachts, but is also a comfortable and sea-worthy fast cruiser. The only criticism of the marque is the restricted accomodation, but for someone who prizes sailing quality and performance over caravan comforts the little Achilles is a hard act to beat. This one benefits from recent upgrades to mainsail and tender, a good fairly recent survey and a keen and caring owner. See "more photos" to view 34 internal and external photos of this vessel. Analysis and comments by Alan Coy of Boatshed Wales.
Note: Due to relocation by the owner, VERY keen offers on the asking price WILL be considered BEFORE May.
