Step on board the Arcona 435 Mk II at the Southampton International Boat Show, 15-24 September 2023.
This European Yacht of the Year award winning performance cruiser will be on display in the marina on stand M362.
The Arcona 435 epitomises the characteristics of a very comfortable fast family cruiser and a racing yacht, without making any compromises. She is both safe and stable with laminated bulkheads and Arcona’s galvanised steel girder. She is a joy to sail as she responds quickly and doesn’t weigh more than 8990kg. The Arcona 435 can also be specified with carbon hull, deck and spars which reduces her weight further.
With her wider stern there is great space in the cockpit for crew, friends and family. It also gives more space down below in the aft cabins, galley and saloon. The wide stern gives her great sailing performance, especially downwind.
She has twin wheels configured as standard which can be upgraded to carbon. The cockpit table recesses down into the floor and is easy to deploy when needed, otherwise creating an open, comfortable area whilst sailing. The windows on the coachroof are long and wide allowing plenty of natural light in to the saloon.
The spacious cockpit has an integral bathing platform and a large storage locker aft, accessible from two recessed hatches in the cockpit floor. The sides of the cockpit have been designed for intelligent use of stowage and at the front edge of the coaming are two compartments that elegantly stow all halyards. The cockpit coaming, aft deck and sole are in teak. The side deck can be specified either in teak or in Arcona’s proven non-slip material.
Named ‘the Greyhound of the Sea unleashed’ by Yachting Monthly magazine, she is a 45 foot performance cruiser that caused Yachting World magazine to say, “Time spent on the wheel of the Arcona 435 is time you’ll value. You’ll soon become a helm hog – you’ll get up for your watch early to see if there’s any chance of getting a few minutes more. Try it, if you think I’m exaggerating.”
