Arcona 435

The new Arcona 435 continues to uphold Arcona’s strong heritage of innovation and design excellence, using the finest materials and best workmanship. The Arcona 435 is a fast, modern and easy-to-manage 43 foot performance cruiser. Launched by Arcona Yachts in 2018, reactions show she is a favourite in the performance racer-cruiser sector.

Stefan Qviberg, the designer, has once again desigend a masterpiece that appeals to owners who wants both comfort for cruising on long passages and sailing performance to win races. Stefan explains, “The 435 has an efficient sail design, a low weight, and the characteristic stability exhibited in every Arcona yacht. The 435 is modern inside and out.”

The Arcona 435 epitomises the characteristics of a very comfortable fast family cruiser and a racing yacht, without making any compromises. She is both safe and stable with laminated bulkheads and Arcona’s galvanised steel girder. She is a joy to sail as she responds quickly to trim input and doesn’t weigh more than 8900kg. The Arcona 435 can also be specified with carbon hull, deck and spars which reduces her weight further. Arcona 435 has a slightly larger sail area than previous models to give optimised upwind performance.

Exterior Design

With her wider stern there is great space in the cockpit for crew, friends and family. It also gives more space down below in the aft cabins, galley and saloon. The wide stern gives her great sailing performance, especially downwind. There is also a choice between open or semi-open transom.

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 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.

Interior Design

The boat is designed to be sailed for extended periods of time and in any weather, so a comfortable relaxing yacht interior is an important attribute of an Arcona. We have selected high quality interior materials that ensure you enjoy all aspects of your yacht.

The interior is in selected Khaya mahogany, varnished to a high-gloss satin finish, that successfully communicates a relaxed living space. The mouldings, door frames and stairs are all laminated with varnished teak soles. When we ask our team how many varnish coatings they usually apply, they will always answer “We will varnish until we are satisfied.”

We offer a broad range of cushion fabrics and colour choices and you make that selection 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.
