Re: Jeanneau Attalia


An arcadia is a bit smaller in length. But similar otherwise. It is a Tony Castro design vs Fauroux? sp? for the attalia.

I'm in the water year around here in the salish sea. So no spring commissioning per say as you had to do in Canada. Only what I do when needed. I do need to repair replace rigging at some point in time, along with strip bottom of paint, or cover with a non copper in the next few years due to new state laws about no copper in bottom paints by 2020 or there about.

Thanks for the information Waymar and Virgo,

Unfortunately the sale fell through as the owner went ahead and sold it to someone else during his dealings with me. Let's just say we had a few words.Bummer as I liked the boat and had good plans for it. However, I do have a chance of obtaining an Arcadia which as far as I can tell is almost identical to the Attalia. I will be sailing it in Puerto Rico. Will update if the sale does close.

Good Winds!

Re: Jeanneau Attalia


That looks like a lot of work on the shroud part. May have to do the same myself. I have a loose u-bolt or two for the lower shrouds. may have to open up the area like you did. I may also open up the mast base if I pull the mast in a month or two, along with replacing the wire, which is all original.

I was told the wood under the mast was plywood.......I'd probably try to use something that will not rot per say. aluminum plate, starboard or other equal.

Off to clean the deck etc of my Arcadia.

Wondering if anyone has any tips on what to look for in terms of unacceptable damage, issues, etc before buying.
Thanks a lot and look forward to making fellow owner acquaintances here.

Good winds!
Hello Francisco and welcome,

Waymar has all ready given you a wise answer. When you look at the deck and the foam/balsa in the sandwich construction take a look below the mast step. I've changed the materiel below my mast step during this winter. You can read about it above.

Good luck!

Hello Waymar,

The new mast and the bom will both be longer than the original and the sail plan vill be 20 % larger. I suppose the loads will be like it was before, because of the righting moment is nearly exactly the same. We'll sail faster than before in light winds and we'll probably need the set the first ref earlier then before. So why stronger construction? I think that the old version was a little bit to weak and i'd like to be sure. The main reason why I chose the actual construction is that the rigging hit the deck between to knees. Therefor I fixed the rigging in new chain plates glassed into the hull.

Today I've fixed with my new mast and hopefully I got the sails during this weak. If so happens we'll sail on saturday.
