The highly respected designer of the Arrow sailing catamaran designs with a reputation second to none not only provides buyers with tremendous reassurance that their boats have been designed professionally with vast proven track record and experience to back them up but also enhances their resale value come time to upgrade to a larger vessel as many buyers often do. Why take a chance on a relatively unknown name and design when you have the opportunity to own a multi-hull built at a competitive price from the board of a long established leader in the multi-hull design field.
For further information on this and other models please contact the builder direct at this address.
And other Arrow designs also offered at a glance:
For the more serious sailor wanting something lighter and simpler than the A1200 and now new version 1201 that is more in line with the KISS concept, the Arrow 1280s might be what you are looking for. More spartan and simple in terms of fit-out without the costly to install and maintain generator, air-conditioning, washing machine, water-maker, etc but packs a bit more sailing performance then this model might just fit your bill.
On the other hand, if cruising comfort is more your style and you might be looking for a design with more space and payload capacity than the Arrow 1200, 1201 or 1208 while maintaining the flat panel build concept to help achieve lower build cost then perhaps consider moving up in size to the Arrow 1360.
Whatever you are looking for, that Arrow range is likely to offer a model that will tick most of the boxes.
A brand new model Solitaire 1490 sailing catamaran is also currently under construction.
And a new 1500 power catamaran for the same designer as the Arrow series has also been confirmed which will start construction soon in 2019 as well.
