Arends 33

One of the last Arends 33's, Fine Spirit was launched in 1985 is for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

Arends 33 are classic bluewater boats and hard to find in this original condition with the added bonus of a near new Yanmar 39hp engine showing under 40 hours on the meter.

In April 2022 the engine was serviced. She was slipped in September 2022 for an Insurance survey which is available and would be suitable to use for pre purchase. At the same time she was antifouled, and cleaned.

Sail wardrobe is just a battened main and genoa but they have hardly been used and present very well.

Below is a few words from John Arends taken off the original marketing brochure at the time.

"Originally I didn't plan The Arends to be a production yacht - it started out as a personal dream. A dream motivated by needs for my own yacht. The primary need was to have a fast boat built purely as a cruiser. A boat that could not only get in and out of my home waters, Brisbane Waters, N.S.W but get us into as many close shore areas as possible throughout the Eastern coast of Australia, the Barrier reef and the South Pacific. As well as the shoal draft keel it had to have the maximum amount of performance with the minimum amount of handling. Some dream. But who could be better to bring it to reality than Ron Swanson.

His genious and my determination to build my ideal yacht lead to the birth of 'Romance'. She became the prototype of what is now the Arends 33. My decision to produce this boat and offer her to you, the sailing public, came about by pressure. It was pleasant pressure but pressure none the less from other sailors. It was a response to their needs and their dreams. But that's what your Arends 33 will be all about... your needs and ... your dreams. J. Arends
