About this Sailboat:

The Arpege was designed by Michael Dufour. It quickly gained a reputation in Half Ton Cup racing. However, it was also a spacious boat, with a very broad beam for its time, With an overall length of 9.25m (30 ft 4 inch), beam of 3.02m (9 ft 11 inch), a draft of 1.35m (4 ft 5 inch) and a displacement of 3,632Kg (8,000lb), it is a substantial craft. Three washboards and a sliding hatch with a garage give access to the accommodation. Two steps take you onto the engine cover and then the sole. At the foot of the companionway, the navigation area is to starboard and the galley to port. The chart table has a large sloping top chart table, with a large tray below. The galley and navigation area can be closed off from the rest of the cabin. The saloon has two settees with storage below and pilot berths outboard. The forepeak , which is unlined, contains the heads, storage and a sail-bin. Check out review on SAILING Magazine…
