Class 40 Akilaria RC2 For Sale - A Vendre

We are pleased to present this very well maintained and continuously upgraded semi-custom example of the ever popular Akilaria RC2, campaigned by an amateur sailor. With the benefit of some weight shedding, water ballast optimisation and new Axxon rig in 2013 this boat has the ability to keep up with much newer Class 40s and would be an ideal entry level into the class for the slightly more competitive sailor.

The AKILARIA 40RC2 is built on a female mould. The hull is infused in balsa fibreglass sandwich and foam on the topsides. The deck is epoxy infused fibreglass foam sandwich. All internal structures such as transversal and longitudinal bulkheads are in infused fibreglass foam sandwich. The ring frames are monolithic infused vinylester fibreglass from a female mould. They are glued to the floor of the hull with PLEXUS (methacrylate adhesive). This material guarantees a mechanical and chemical bonding. The deck is also glued to the hull with PLEXUS. Stanchions bolted through the hull/ deck bond complete the join. All the interior layout is composite made: Chart table, galley, storage units.

Security on the deck:
A stainless steel pulpit, 2 stainless steel lateral push pits, a central push pit, with a double row of stainless steel lifelines all the way round, supported by  stanchions on each side. The stanchions are in stainless steel tapered at the top with a support leg. A LEWMAR LP54 hatch is fitted on the transom.

The cockpit was conceived to optimise manoeuvres and to optimise short-handed and solo sailing. The central tiller is equipped with a telescopic SPINLOCK tiller extension. The mainsheet traveller is fitted on a transversal composite support. The steering positions are recessed into the deck to optimise ergonomics. Foot chocks on the cockpit floor provide footholds during manoeuvres. The cockpit is self-draining. A double door companionway access allows a central support where clutches and two winches are fitted.

Water ballast system:
Two SOFOSCOOP type n°2, electrical filling pump, sliding gate valves. 750l water ballasts tanks each equipped with a clear watertight inspection hatch and vented to the deck.

New Axon mast in 2013 with two sets of spreaders weighs 180kg centre of gravity 60cm lower and consequently 80 kg removed off the keel bulb. Mast, boom and bowsprit are autoclave pre-preg carbon. It is fitted on deck on an anodised aluminium plate. The gooseneck fitting is attached with wound carbon, the masthead is also carbon. Mast refit by builder in 2017. The bowsprit is side adjustable and has a rectangular section to avoid side flex. The bowsprit orientation is via a curved rail fitted on deck. Lines are led back to the cockpit to optimise bowsprit adjustment. Rod standing rigging, on each side with turnbuckle adjustment for Vs and Ds. The main forestay, inner forestay and two sets of backstays are textile.
