Arcona Yachts: introducing the new Arcona 435
Thursday, June 21, 2018 4:59 PM
The Arcona 435 will make her world premiere at Southampton International Boat Show, 14th – 23rd September 2018. Arcona Yachts will be available to view on M345, M347 and M349 at the show.
The 435 is the latest model to be released by Arcona Yachts and has created the sort of reaction to say she’ll become a favourite for the discerning sailor within the performance cruiser yachts sector.
Building on the success of the Arcona 430, which won European Yacht of the Year in 2009, the 435 continues to uphold Arcona’s strong heritage of innovation and design excellence, using the finest materials and best workmanship. The Arcona 435 is a quick, modern and easy-to-manage 43-foot performance cruiser.
The Designer, Stefan Qviberg has once again fulfilled Arcona’s brief to create a yacht that fits exactly in the intended slot of the market – for the owner who doesn’t want to compromise on sailing performance and comfort. Stefan said “The 435 has an efficient sail design, a low weight and the same stability known in every Arcona yacht. We liked the hull shape and line of the 430 so for the 435, we’ve built on our learning from her predecessor while modernising the boat inside and out.”
The sail plan will be with a 106% overlapping headsail and a relatively larger mainsail than previous models. The 435 is easy-to-handle no matter if you are sailing shorthanded or fully crewed. Compared to the Arcona 430, the Arcona 435 is more modern in many aspects. She has a wider stern which gives her a more spacious saloon and a larger cockpit without compromising on her sailing ability on all angles. An efficient sail design in combination with optimised weight will ensure that the Arcona 435 performs superbly. She is a boat that will win regattas one weekend and then take the family for a comfortable and safe sail the next.
The side decks are wide and the cockpit is spacious with plenty of room for crew, family and friends. There are twin carbon wheels and the cockpit table will recess into the cockpit floor. There is a choice between an open transom or semi-closed. With her plumb bow and wide stern she will offer plenty of speed and comfortable sailing.
The owner of Arcona 435.01 is looking forward to her official handover. Commenting on the appeal of the 435, the owner of the first yacht in production said the decision couldn’t have been easier: “For me the 435 fitted my requirements exactly. I wanted a quality, high performance, reliable, statement yacht, with enough space for my family and friends to comfortably enjoy.”
“Also I was keen to have a yacht that performed well, so that I could liven things up when required for fast passages and a spot of racing. Given her powerful hull and rig design, I believe the 435 will deliver everything I need and want from my yacht.”
The Arcona 435 reflects the quality expected from Swedish boat builders using the latest materials, advanced techniques and handpicked suppliers. Her lay-up, which incorporates a 20mm Divinycell foam core, employs the latest vacuum infusion technology. All bulkheads are bonded to the hull and deck for added strength.
Arcona yacht interiors have typical features, using high quality wood work and practical designs in clever locations. They are light and modern, reflecting classic Scandinavian design. The generous saloon has been carefully thought out for optimum entertaining purposes. Taking in the full 3.98m beam of the yacht, there is plenty of space around the table and she has a spacious galley, three cabins and two heads.
There is no doubt this immaculately crafted new addition to the Arcona range will appeal to those looking for an eye-catching, thoroughbred yacht that is likely to make a superb impression on both the regatta circuit and with the cruising world.
