Sailing BoatsJeanneauArcadia 29United Kingdom
A comfortable well maintained cruiser with a tall twin spreader rig and a racing pedigree designed in by Tony Castro. Equipped for single or short-handed sailing in local creaks, offshore or Europe. An ideal boat for couples or small families or the occasional race.
This is the rarer centre Board version with a 1metre sleek fixed keel that provides performance equal to most comparable fin keel boats with the centreboard up and a windward performance to outpoint most fin-keelers with it down another 0.9 metre's. Currently lying Thames, Essex.
