In Europe, Arcona sailboats are revered for their dominance in races from local regattas to offshore multi-day races. They are also well known among sailors for their Swedish handcraftsmanship and beautiful interiors. Simply put, Arconas truly possess that rare combination of performance and quality that boat manufacturers aspire to and that Arcona is known for across every boat they make. It is these qualities that have led Arcona to win European yacht of the year multiple times and on at least one occasion for Arcona to be told, “you know you guys can’t win yacht of the year two years in a row even though your boats deserve it.” Some boats can compete with Arcona at the dock, but none compare to Arconas out on the water. It is the true and discerning sailor who chooses an Arcona.
