ArChi is a 2013 launch with a host of 'extras', lying in Hamble. She has only been lightly day-sailed. No expense has been spared in her upkeep and she has been professional managed. She has a full suite of sails both upwind and downwind, with many that are hardly used. A full equipment list with all the 'boxes ticked' including; Dyform rigging and carbon wheels.
With the owner moving on and hanging up his sailing shoes this is a great opportunity to get hold of one of the rarer 430's with the incredible Jeffa twin wheel set-up.
The Arcona 430 was European Yacht of the Year 2009, and offers a great dimension in cruiser-racing, without compromise on performance or comfort. Designed as a performance cruiser that can race at weekends, she is a modern yachtsman's dream – truly competitive in performance terms and luxurious below decks, offering an unrivalled ambience, space, light, and comfort.
Her steering is positive with just enough feedback and very little lock – fantastic.

She has also been praised for her crew-friendly design: a large foredeck area, wide side- decks, and all lines leading aft.
Below decks the Arcona 430 lives up to anticipation: warm Khaya mahogany, Swedish quality, and rich comfort. A white headlining and 6ft 4in standing room in the saloon/galley combine to give a welcoming feeling of space and light.
Features include a curved seating area around the table, which can accommodate seven and converts to a double berth, double-sink galley, large top-opening fridge, and good stowage.
The identical aft cabins are a good size, and the owners' cabin forward has an island bed and
roomy ensuite heads and shower. There are ample lockers and hanging space.

Structurally, she is built around a massive steel framework that takes all the loads from the mast, rig, and keel, rather than dissipating the stresses through the hull. These features not only make her immensely strong but also allow the rig to be well tensioned with no danger of the hull distorting.
The hull and decks are made from 20mm thick Divinycell foam, sandwiched between a tough water resistant multi-axial polyester laminate. The bulk heads and interior are laminated to the hull and deck to give additional strength and rigidity. Her sailing capability can be summed up in three words: balanced, stiff and direct.
