1981 Arends 33 for sale.

Arends 33 are classic bluewater boats and hard to find in this condition and even rarer to see an original owner since 1981. She looks as pretty now as the first day of launching but has also received upgrades along the way of course.

Fresh off the slipway in April with antifoul, engine service, topside polish, anodes and an all over buff.

Very well equipped with good electronics including HF and VHF, Radar, Autopilot with remote, digital TV, electric anchor winch, 4 batteries and solar as well.

The owner is a sprightly 81 years old but it's time to surrender his passion for the last 37 years.

2007 rigging with matching sails at the time plus a spinnaker and pole. Inspection welcome anytime.

Below is a few words from John Arends taken off the original marketing brochure that is still onboard.

"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 draft 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 genious 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 none the less 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. J. Arends
