1984 Arends 33 in excellent condition now for sale with DBY Boat Sales.

Wonderfully stable with her wide flat lines aft. She was ahead of her time in design.

The shallow draft and integrated keel and rudder make her perfect for shallow bar crossings and in close anchoring.

The engine is a 2017 model Craftsman 27hp with very low hours.

2017 running and standing rigging.

A brand new fully certified gas stove and oven has recently been installed. Upholstery is new as is most of the galley area.

She is in need of a new set of sails. Quotes for these are available on enquiry.

Having spent many days cruising myself in the Arends 33 I have only praise for the concept. But an apt description below is from the original designer John Arends.

"Originally I didn't plan the Arends to be a production yacht - it started out as a personal dream. A dream motivated by needs for my own yacht. The primary need was to have a fast boat built purely as a cruiser. A boat that could not only get in and out of my home waters, Brisbane Waters, N.S.W but get us into as many close shore areas as possible throughout the Eastern coast of Australia, the Barrier Reef and the South Pacific. As well as the shoal draught keel it had to have the maximum amount of performance with the minimum amount of handling. Some dream. But who could be better to bring it to reality than Ron Swanson?

His genius and my determination to build my ideal yacht lead to the birth of 'Romance'. She became the prototype of what is now the Arends 33. My decision to produce this boat and offer her to you, the sailing public, came about by pressure. It was pleasant pressure but pressure nonetheless from other sailors. It was a response to their needs and their dreams. But that's what your Arends 33 will be all about... your needs and ... your dreams."
