The beautiful hull form of the new Arcona 380 has produced a boat that is outstanding in strong winds and impressively stiff to windward. Under sail, she is wonderfully balanced and responsive to the helm with her twin wheels. Her deck layout with wide side decks and roomy cockpit make her easy to handle under sail, giving the crew an enjoyable sailing experience. The Arcona 380 is a highly popular model among cruising families and race crews. Its sailing success continues to show on race courses, including an overall win 2017 in Sweden’s largest offshore race, ÅF Offshore Race, in standard configuration.
Her interior reflects Arcona Yachts’ attention to detail and style according to her Swedish roots. The large, light, and airy saloon is beautifully handcrafted in farmed Khaya mahogany. For those who enjoy a lighter interior she is also available in oak – go to gallery for pictures. She is available with two or one aft cabins.
All our models are built with the latest materials and advanced techniques. The lay-up, which incorporates a 20mm Divinycell foam core employs the latest vacuum infusion technology. All bulkheads are bonded to the hull and deck for added strength. At the heart of the boat is the galvanised steel cradle, taking all the dynamic loads of rig, mast, and keel, ensuring that the boat is strong, stiff and responsive.
“If the 380 were a car, she would be an Aston Martin: a beautifullyengineered, luxurious and refined sports tourer, purring with power and control. For anyone who actively and genuinely enjoys the business of sailing, this boat is the benchmark. I defy anyone to sail this boat and not smile as she leans gently on a gust and surges forward. It’s pure sailing pleasure.” – Chris Beeson, Yachting Monthly, September 2014
“You’ll find cheaper 40-footers, but you’d be hard-pushed to find a better compromise between looks, performance and stability. Or one that’s more thrilling to sail.” – Sailing Today, Online, Test on Arcona 380
”The grip in the water is top-notch. We intentionally pushed the boat and am surprised at how far we had to go before she loses her grip. As a helmsman, you both sit and stands comfortably with the solid footrests when the boat heels over. Arcona 380 lives up to our high expectations. She has nice, well-balanced lines and is very satisfying to look at. Every detail seems to be well thought out and well done, which it probably also is, since the concept is based on the same successful platform as her big sister. It is obvious that Arcona has made an effort to create a really nice performance cruiser inside out. This is undoubtedly a genuine built boat that invites as much to nail biting racing as to relaxed holiday sailing.” – Search Magazine, Website, Arcona 380Lataa esite
