Here we present an Achilles 840, undoubtedly the best example of this model on the market today, that has been extensively upgraded by the current owners. Since purchasing the boat in June 2020, the owners have added many items such as a new sprayhood, cockpit cover/bimini, mainsail cover, dinghy and Mercury 3.5HP outboard, 2x batteries and much more.

She is powered by a Yanmar 2YM15 inboard diesel engine with low engine hours of approximately 250 and the engine was last serviced in 2021.

She has been antifouled in May 2022 and is ready for the new owner to sail her away.
Berth at Portland Marina is available to be carried on to the new owner.

She is sure to be a popular boat, early viewing is recommended.
