A well cared for example of the Archambault Grand Surprise, this boat comes stocked with an extensive sail wardrobe, large array of electronics, recent replacement of standing rigging (Dyform 2011), running rigging (Dyneema racing) and deck hardware (2017). The hull has been fully stripped and refaired in 2019 with new epoxy and Hempel silicone antifouling(60 month effective!).
This Grand Surprise offers powerful and efficient upwind performance due to its deep lead bulb keel ensuring quick acceleration and a responsive sail plan. Off the wind the Grand Surprise will quickly reach double digits, flying an asymmetric from its retractable bowsprit or a symmetric.
The ease of sail management, responsive sail plan, balanced hull and exciting performance make the Grand Surprise an exciting round the cans performer than can be used fully crewed around the race course, easily managed short handed or simply taken for a leisurely day sailing with family and friends.
Set up and ready to sail away this boat is available for viewing immediately.
