Broker Remarks

Fainleog is an excellent example of the Arpege class. Arpege's have an excellent racing record and now make fine fast cruisers. An Arpege could be compared to a contessa 32 but with more room and a lower price. The Arpege was designed by Michael Dufour in 1966 as the first of his volume production boats. It quickly gained a reputation in Half Ton Cup racing. However, it was also a spacious boat, with a very broad beam for its time, as a review in 1966 commented "it is astonishing how much space below the increase in beam makes. A total of 1136 were built between 1966 and 1975.The keel is a cast iron fin, with an exaggerated bulb, that tails towards the back and has a broad, flat base. The keel is fitted into a recess moulded into the hull bottom. The narrow rudder has a deep narrow skeg, and Fainleog has had a wheel installed in place of the original tiller. Access in to the cabin is very good due to it's wide hatch, two steps take you onto the engine cover and then the sole. At the foot of the companionway, the navigation area is to starboard and the galley to port. The chart table has a large sloping top chart table, with a large tray below. The galley and navigation area can be closed off from the rest of the cabin. The saloon has two settees with storage below and pilot berths outboard. The fore-peak, contains the heads, storage and a sail-bin. Arpege's have gained a reputation as a high performance and tough boat. Fainleog has being regularly used and looked after. She's winterised every year for the necessary maintenance and although she has the original engine this has been well maintained and runs smoothly. She's moored on a swing mooring in Itchenor and viewing is highly recommended. Please contact Simon Flowers of Network Yacht Brokers Chichester on 02392 637466 to arrange a viewing.
