1985 29.75' Jeanneau Arcadia

Galesville, Maryland, United States
$14,000 USD
Condition: Fair

This 1985 Jeanneau Arcadia is a perfect day sailing boat with a reliable engine for fun on the bay. There are some upgrades to do, but she can be blue water if that is your goal. This is a bargain Jeanneau and depending on your goals it could be perfect for you because usually you have to spend a lot more than this. Decks are good.

It has all the beautiful wood below, modern design features, self tailing winches, good family size, a swing keel, and nicely done paint trim. I like that for 29 feet it has tiller steering and a large cockpit for entertaining, the engine is whisper quiet, and the hull is very sound with a matrixed, encapsulated keel. The lifting keel is ideal for the Chesapeake 4’7” in up position. The boat is light and performs quite well for a cruiser.

Reason for the sale is that I have moved up in size and to the power side of things. I am looking to focus on that new project and sell a sail boat. This one will not last. If not this one, ask me about a similar boat I have for sale.
