The Arcona 430 was European Yacht of the Year 2009, and offers a new dimension in cruiser-racing, without compromise on performance or comfort. Designed as a performance cruiser that can race at weekends, she is a modern yachtsman’s dream – truly competitive in performance terms and luxurious below decks, offering an unrivalled ambience, space, light, and comfort.
Structurally, at the heart of the boat is a galvanised steel cradle that takes all the dynamic loads from the mast, rig, and keel making her immensely strong.
The Arcona 430 is built with the latest materials and advanced techniques. 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.
Her sailing capability can be summed up in three words: balanced, stiff, and direct. Feedback through the wheel is intuitive, and the deep rudder provides an excellent grip.
