Yachting Monthly magazine tested the new Arcona 435 in late 2018. Graham Snook and Theo Stocker, editor of Yachting Monthly, were on board for the test. Graham said,
“There are few boats that offer both speed and a genuinely quality interior, but the Arcona is one of them. She was a joy to sail for the helm and comfortable for the crew. The sail handling is well thought out and works whether you’re sailing fully crewed or short-handed.”
“Even when overpowered when the wind built, she retained her composure elegantly.”
“A true performance cruiser, the Arcona takes it all in her stride.”
To further enjoy the benefits of sailing with a code zero or asymmetric spinnaker, we recommend adding a bowsprit to your Arcona yacht.
