Hello everyone, I recently acquired a Achilles 7M. known as Sylvan Eve.

I never heard of Achilles although I work for A dealer of power and sailyachts but she looks nice.

Can Anyone give me more details about the 7M. or some plans.

Welcome to the group. I have very little information about the 7m. Only about 12 were produced so it is rare to find one. The only details I Have are the dimensions as I have put on the main Achilles web site and I have a specification sheet published by Butler Mouldings which I will put up on the site when I have time. If you have anything else please let me know.

I fear we may become friends and collaboraters of these fine little boats. I have "Chiron" formally "Xantippe" and hull No.5, I suspect from the A700 5 sail number.
I've owned her for nearly 10 years now, 1 year in Scottish waters and the rest in the Caribbean, until my return to Scotland just 2 months ago. I'm presently refitting the keel after removing it so she could fit in a standard 40ft shipping container, then she'll be loose on the west coast of Scotland and after any mini-tonners that want to come and play!
If you have any questions I'll reply to the best of my ability.

Well people, at last the boat is in the water and i've fixed the mast. now I have to put the mast on the boat and then i'll finally get to experience how she sails. When ready i'll post new pics here. and off course tell how I think she handle's.

I,ve sailed her this evening with a very light breeze, just using the genua. she goes very smooth, next time i'll put up the mainsail.

Hallo Pascal,

Ik ben de huidige eigenaar van de McDreamy. Hij zag er netjes uit toen jij hem opgeknapt hebt.
Degene waar ik hem heb gekocht heeft er een zootje van gemaakt. Werkte bij jou de diepte/snelheidsmeter en zat deze op het 12 Volt circuit aangesloten. Ik heb er totaal geen gegevens bij gekregen.

Hopelijk kun je mij verder helpen.

Good looking yacht. I see the rudder is very deep and significantly different from the A24. Is there any relationship to the A24 or is she a completely separate design?
