Designed for long-distance, short-handed sailing

Product Overview


Achilles 9m

Price as reviewed:


While cruising offshore in the Achilles 24 was ‘adventurous’, the 9m was designed for long-distance, short-handed sailing and today makes a good choice as a cheap but safe and strong introduction to cruising.

Despite having six berths the accommodation was cramped, with small spaces for the chart table, galley and heads.

She had a fin-and-skeg underwater profile with a much taller rig, comparatively, than the 24 and could be raced competitively at club level. A 10hp diesel was fitted as standard.
