She is easy to handel and perfect for a first time buyers boat or equally chanlla The Achilles 24 was designed in 1968 by Oliver Lee, and between then and 1985 about 600 were built by Butler Mouldings of Gowerton, near Swansea in Wales. Two versions were built, the fin-keel, with draught of 3' 9" and the triple keel version, with six inches shallower draught but slightly higher ballast weight. Whilst the fin-keel versions are definitely faster, the triple keel versions are not that much slower, and have the major advantage of being able to dry out upright, allowing mooring on cheaper drying moorings if required.
The saloon has two settee berths, and a small twin-burner cooker and grill to starboard and a basin to port. The forecabin is separated by a part bulkhead, with a drop-down curtain, and contains a vee-berth/small double, with a chemical toilet under the removable berth section.
