Year 2005

Builder/Manufacturer Archambault

2005 Archambault A40.

The Archambault A40 is a great racing/ cruising yacht, which is happy doing round the cans inshore racing, offshore racing or even cruising with the family. There are enough creature comforts onboard to be comfortable when sailing with family, and when you want to go fast round the race course this exceptional hull design will keep you at the front of the pack. 

Well looked after racing/ cruising yacht, with only one owner from new. Lots of carbon fibre where needed (Carbon fibre mast, boom, spinnaker pole, genneker pole and steering wheel). 

This Archambault A 40 can sleep 8 across three double cabins, with two in the saloon. This boat benefits from Webasto heating, and a good set of navigation electronics.
