1985 Arends 33 in excellent condition now for sale with DBY Boat Sales.

Well maintained by meticulous owner.

Many upgrades in recent years including new bimini, new gas stove & grill, fully certified, new Genoa UV strip, electric toilet and all thru hull fittings (excepting holding tank).

The 29hp Nanni was installed new in 2013 and only has 352 hours.

Standing rig was replaced in October 2016.

The shallow draft and integrated keel and rudder on the Arends 33 make her perfect for shallow bar crossings and in close anchoring. Perfect for east coast cruising.

Below is what the designer, John Arends, had to say about the boat.

"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."
