There is no description, superlatives or adjectives that describe what sailing the Arcona 435 is like. It feels like you are onboard a powerful racehorse that is itching to flex its muscles. Yes, you can see the Swedish quality of craftsmanship, the solid wood use throughout the cabin and the spacious cockpit at the dock, but where the Arcona 435 really separates itself from other sailboats is away from the dock, surging through the water at speeds other monohulls in her class can match.
Bottom line, the Arcona 435 is a fast, modern and luxurious 43 foot performance cruiser like no other. Winner of the European Yacht of the Year 2019, the Arcona 435 has quickly become a favorite in the performance racer-cruiser sector.
The wide stern of the 435 both gives it great sailing performance, especially downwind and room in the cockpit for a group of family and friends or a sailing crew.
She has twin wheels configured as standard which can be upgraded to carbon. The cockpit table recesses down into the floor and is easy to deploy when needed, otherwise creating an open, comfortable area whilst sailing. The windows on the coachroof are long and wide allowing plenty of natural light in to the saloon.
The spacious cockpit has an integral bathing platform and a large storage locker aft, accessible from two recessed hatches in the cockpit floor. The sides of the cockpit have been designed for intelligent use of stowage and at the front edge of the coaming are two compartments that elegantly stow all halyards. The cockpit coaming, aft deck and sole are in teak. The side deck can be specified either in teak or in Arcona’s proven non-slip material.
The Arcona 435 is designed to be sailed for extended periods of time and in any weather, so a comfortable relaxing yacht interior is a must.
The light oak interior amplifies the natural light that comes into the cabins and salon. All the wood work including the bulkheads, doors, cabinets, drawers, and the beveled edges around the galley counter are made of solid wood.
The mouldings, door frames and stairs are all laminated with varnished teak soles.
A broad range of cushion fabrics and color choices are available when you order your Arcona. The ceiling lighting in the saloon, cabins and in the heads consists of recessed spotlights. Below deck in the saloon, there are more spotlights with a dimmer in the navigation station to provide atmospheric saloon lighting. All cabins are equipped with roof lamps and two bulkhead-mounted reading lamps.
