Archambault is building a new A35 (first 2 boats will be ready in late summer):

Better ballast to weight ratio (50 instead of 40%) at the same weight.
Same hull, but lighter deck and interieur with heavier keel.
Bigger sail area and longer mast.
Bowsprit as an Option.
Tiller or 2 wheels (instead of one wheel in the old A35).
2 versions: racing or cruising.
Price for the standard version is 148.000 including VAT...


Did you recognize that the NEO 400 has pivoting berths to balance heel in rough seas?
Having sailed Grand Surprise and 35, those are great sailing boats! Fast, great feel, near perfect amateur crew racing deck layout, and well built. Not an extended cruiser and not ideal undersides in terms of space and ergonomics but a great sailing machine.
