24’ cruising yacht, Achilles 24.
£500, any sensible offer accepted.
Sold as a project – it is watertight below the waterline but not seaworthy.
Currently has been out of the water for 4 years under restoration. The exterior is in good condition with minor cosmetic repairs only needed. The interior needs complete restoration.
The deck bolts for the main stays need replacing – the wooden sandwich has rotten and replacement must be fibreglassed back into place. No other area of the cabin or GRP is affected and the deck has no soft spots.
Comes with all spars, rigging, sails etc. The onboard engine has been removed as an outboard was fitted. I have an engine in pieces if you would like an inboard.
Currently held on a fully roadworthy trailer that can be used to transport/delivery. This is available on separate negotiation. I can pass the details if you are interested, but it is worth about £2500.
Achilles 24 information can be found on the Achilles website.
Please see the below from a recent (Mar 18) marine engineer’s report:
