2004 Archambault A40 RC

CARIBBEAN, St. Maarten/St. Martin


This fast and smooth Archambault A40RC is a highly stylized, beautifully designed 40-foot Racer. Due to its robust and clear construction it is easy to be maintained. The 3 x cabin layout is much more pleasant and comfortable than it is common for a racing yacht.

The deck layout of the A40 is centered around the gigantic open cockpit. The hydraulic backstay and boom vang makes the high fractionated rigg easy to control. Racing this boat is just a pleasure and sheer fun.

This 2004 model has been just very seldom used for short cruises around the St Martin waters and is in Turn-key condition.

She is a must to see, if you are looking for a fast racer ,which can be also comfortably used for short periods of cruising .
