Archambault 13

I knew that the boat was going to be a great racer but it seemed to me that it would be an even more radical boat (in what regards cruising amenities) than the other A boats. It seems that it was their first intention but....:

"However, having given the design some more thought the designers Joubert- Nivelt and Fruschi along with Archambault have designed 4 versions of the brand new A13 ….

The A13 Cruiser, The A13 IRC comfort racer, The A13 IRC racer and the out and out stripped down A13 Racer."


"So the A13 basic designs consist of: 6.3 to 6.7 T, allowing planning at 60 from 12 Kts wind and at 120 from 15 Kts wind. IRC TCC between 1.16 and 1.18. Open cockpit with tiller or double wheels with seats and protection for offshore racing. "

Planning at 60 with 12k wind? COOL!!!!

and the better part is that the interior on the cruising version and even on the comfort racer looks really good

Cruiser version:

Comfort racer:
