Broker's Comments

The Achilles 9m Yacht is a well respected and robust yacht capable of both coastal and offshore cruising.

This particular version appears to be in good condition and there are lots of signs that she has been well maintained.

Internally the woodwork and upholstery are in good condition and feels nice and clean.

She has been out of the water since COVID lockdown and now no longer use. However, when it was pulled out the engine was fully serviced.

In addition to the Mainsail and Genoa, the yacht also comes with a spinnaker and No1 and No2 sail.
