FOR SALE – Achilles 24 sailing yacht,
Triple keel – Sail number 102 (built around the end of the
The Achilles 24 is a solid little cruiser / racer that can
be fun club racing or cruising further offshore. This boat is in relatively
good condition and ready to sail off into the sunset, but as with any 40 year
old boat there are always jobs to do. The past 5 years I have spent a lot on
upgrades to make the boat comfortable for weekends away with 3 bunks and a
small galley (cooker, sink, tap and water tank). Its fun to race in local club
races with laminate racing sails, and capable of doing the odd cross channel
trip. It is set up for sailing single handed with roller reefing
genoa, lazy jacks, reefing lines and main halyard led back to the cockpit. She
is great for learning to sail on being very responsive and forgiving. She is also quite solid when
the wind picks up (this type of boat has crossed the Atlantic!).
The good points of this boat – the sail wardrobe with white
cruising sails (main (ok), genoa (needs uv strip), working jib (ok)), laminate
racing sails (main (very good) and genoa (good)) and cruising chute (good),
lines led back to cockpit and all rigging in good condition, reliable Tohatsu 4
stroke 6hp outboard (MFS6C), it is a dry
boat inside with no leaks, new cabin insulation and vinyl lining, cabin wood
work re-varnished, new switch panel and cabling, vhf radio, new
depth finder, new Nasa LED tricolour / anchor light, the hull and deck are
sound with no soft spots, everything works as it should.
The jobs to do – there is a small section of rubbing strip
that needs to be replaced (sea picture), the cabin window lining panels need to
be finished (I have all material cut ready to go, just need to be put in), but
these are not things which need to be done immediately, you can still go
I am selling with basic kit to get you going – fire
extinguisher and blanket, first aid kit, 2x buoyancy aids, chart to the Solent,
4x fenders, 4x mooring ropes, main anchor with chain and warp, bucket and sponge,
boat hook, flag and staff, sail wardrobe, outboard.
Included in the sale is a sheltered tidal mooring in
Langstone Harbour near Southsea Marina. It gives roughly 2 hours either side of
HW Portsmouth access. This is paid up until next March 2019 and costs £140 a
year including harbour dues. The mooring is owned by me and I will transfer
this to you. If you plan on moving the boat you do not have to have the
I expect payment within 7 days of auction ending. You are
bidding to buy. If you would like to view the boat or see more photos then
please send me a message via EBay. If you have any questions about the boat
then please feel free to ask.
Reason for selling – accidently brought bigger boat.
