Owners Comment:

A yacht owner for more than 50 years and now over 80. I can honestly say REQUIEM has brought me more enjoyment than any other yacht I have owned.  We took ownership of the boat in Sweden, her first real test was a North Sea crossing testing conditions. On that first passage I realised what a thoroughbred the Arcona 430 is.

After 9 years of cruising and some light racing I have total confidence in the boats ability. With the lines all lead aft and a full compliment of electric winches; cruising the boat with a crew of 2 is easy and rewarding.  Reefs are easily put in the main from the cockpit. She easily makes over 8kts to windward when cruising. We have found the blade jib to be an excellent sail. She is perfectly balanced and a pleasure to sail even in foul weather. The most rewarding boat I have ever owned. 

On her way to Ireland with her new owners we are sure they will find the boat more than lives up to their expectations.

We have buyers actively seeking high-quality cruising yachts and motorboats. If you are considering selling your boat please get in touch. Find full details of the brokerage services we can provide here.
