Designed and built by Chris Butler, and sailed single handed by him in both the Azores and Back in 1975 and the 1976 OSTAR, the Achilles 9m proved herself as a thoroughly competent and seaworthy cruising design as well as being a competitive racer. In fact her successor, the 840, won her class (under 30ft) in both those races in 1984, helmed once again by her builder/designer.
Our example here is elderly but sound, and better maintained and presented by her owner than many of her contemporaries. A new owner would no doubt wish to add some modern electronics and a simple solar panel if sailing plans are to include a venture offshore but she is perfectly capable of passage making as she is. She is a simple, easily handled and comfortable cruiser racer that will look after you, even if you're not planning a single handled transat!
