We’re delighted to announce that the award-nominated Arcona 50 by Jeppesen & Pons will be on display for the first time at boot Düsseldorf, 20-28 January. The NEW Arcona 435 MK II will also be available to take a look around.
On the first evening of boot Düsseldorf, Saturday 20th January, the European Yacht of the Year award winners will be announced in the awards ceremony. The judging panel met four times over 2023 to decide which yachts to shortlist and test. The panel is made up of journalists from the most prestigious yachting magazines across Europe, including Yacht Germany, Praktiskt Båtägande, Yachting World, Vene, Seilmagasinet, Voiles & Voiliers, Baadmagasinet, Nautica y Yates, Zeilen, Vela e Motore, Yacht Revue & Marina.Ch. It was an honour for Arcona CEO, Urban Lagnéus, and Arcona Sales Manager, Magnus Lundgren, to go sailing with each of the journalists in October in La Rochelle. The Arcona Yachts team are looking forward to reading what they thought of our luxury performance cruiser. So far the Arcona 50 has featured on the front cover of Yachting World and Vene and the first look and first thoughts are starting to be revealed.
On testing the Arcona 50, Toby Hodges of Yachting World said, “The 50 is fast to find its groove and boasts plenty of grip…This is a sparkly new addition to the luxury performance cruiser market, and one that’s been executed very well. Its looks are backed up by high build and finish quality and performance on the water. While I doubt it’ll be raced (like the smaller Arconas often are), or will suit typical bluewater use, it offers a purity of performance pushbutton sailing. Where the Arcona is a handsome prospect upwind in a light breeze, it transforms into a powerful reaching machine with stacks of control.”
If you are seeking luxurious cruising comfort with fast sailing performance that is easy to handle shorthanded, plus a boat that will stand out from the crowd, the Arcona 50 is the yacht for you.
The Arcona 50 is in the luxury cruiser category of the European Yacht of the Year and this model is not only the first 50-footer by Arcona Yachts but the first Arcona by Jeppesen & Pons – and has proven to be a real head turner already. All of the yachts in the Arcona fleet can be specified for racing or cruising thanks to the large range of options available to meet your Arcona sailing needs – whether your dream is to take part in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) or to race Gotland Runt.
The NEW Arcona 435 MK II won European Yacht of the Year in the Performance Cruiser category in 2019 and continues to be one of our bestselling models. She is 45foot long (13.63m excluding bowsprit) and a true cruiser-racer. This model has recently won races in Chicago and another owner has plans to do the ARC in 2024 as part of their Arcona sailing adventures.
