Achilles 24 - £3,500
This Achilles 24 is ideal for the dinghy sailor looking to move into coastal cruising. She performs very well and handles as easily and responsively as a large dinghy. Her triple keel means she sails well and can also take the ground.
The current owner has carried out extensive renovation work on Thetis, including new perspex windows, new woodwork below providing side lockers with perspex sliding doors and a detachable nav table.
A new electrical system has been installed to provide cabin lights, nav lights and power to VHF and instruments. A solar panel boosts the battery.
The engine was purchased new in 2015 and has been little used (35 hours). It is serviced annually. Thetis is tiller steered and has a new bespoke engineered stainless steel rudder stock and tiller connection.
The hull was stripped and no sign of osmosis found. New antifoul was applied in 2015 and fresh antifoul added in 2018. In 2018 the decks were repainted and exterior woodwork treated with International Woodskin.
