    Achilles - 840 for sale

    Sailing BoatsAchillesModel 840United Kingdom

    Remarks :
    Zephyrus - Achilles 840

    A version of the classic Achilles 24 providing more space for accommodation, while retaining the sailing performance. This is a masthead sloop with tiller steering, a fin keel and skeg mounted rudder. A 20 hp Yanmar propels the boat through a saildrive unit.

    The rig is set up for ease of single or short handed sailing (and racing) including symmetric and asymmetric spinnakers. As well as a furling genoa, the mast is fitted with a furling system for the mainsail. The appropriate ballast has been fitted to the keel to compensate for the weight of the reefing system.

    The boat carries bow and kedge anchors with plenty of scope for use in the Bristol Channel.
