|Achernar II is a stunning John Alden MALABAR XII design. Extensively refitted between 2010 and 2012, she presents in excellent condition. Below the beautifully crafted timber finish creates an ambience of cosy quality. On deck the cockpit is deep and the side decks are wide.
"Achernar" is a veteran of Vintage Yacht Regattas and is ready for the next Wooden Boat Festival. She is well-equipped to cruise offshore in comfort and safety.
We would welcome the opportunity to show you on board this very special yacht.
