One of our Astus 20.5 customers is looking to upgrade to an Astus 22.5 next year. So, a rare opportunity to  purchase an 18 month old Astus 20.5, ‘Emma Peel’,  has just arrived!

Offering exhilarating performance yet easy to rig, handle and tow to your favourite sailing areas, the Astus 20.5 trimaran is the latest model in the line of innovative Astus boats responds to a real demand for exciting but practical trailer sailers. The Astus 20.5 succeeded the popular Astus 20.2, of which 120 were sold. Described by Astus Boats as their Coastal Cruiser, the 20.5 is rapidly becoming their most successful trimaran to date. No wonder. As a result of its  partnership with world renowned naval architects, VPLP, Astus Boats have come up with a real head turner. Huge floats with wave piercing hulls placed further apart and forward give the new 20.5 a very contemporary look and a truly stable platform.  Blistering speeds can be achieved at a crew-friendly low angle of heel. Of course, with speed comes extended range. Previously out-of-reach destinations become a real possibility for day-trips or weekends thanks to a cabin for two featuring a long v-berth, plenty of storage and an off-set centre board for easy access.

Offered at a significant discount compared to the new price this used Astus ‘Emma Peel’ is now ready for viewing. Weighing in at under 500kgs, due to her resin infused hull, Emma Peel is not only lightning quick, but she’s towed on an unbraked road trailer. Launching and recovery is simple too, even single handed, with floats on telescopic arms, turning a trailer friendly 2.5m towing width into super stable 4.5m sailing platform in moments! Emma Peel has been well looked after and upgraded during the owner’s tenure and comes with a long list of upgrades to the standard boat:

  • Lighter, resin infused hull
  • Unbraked tilting road trailer
  • Sports sails and fittings
  • Gennaker with furler and bowsprit
  • Lazybag mainsail system
  • 3.5HP Outboard
  • Carbon tiller
  • Swimming ladder
  • Anti-fouling
  • Cabin cushions and storage bags
    Plus
  • A host of owner improvements:
    • Jib clew board
    • Rudder/Tiller bag
    • Dyneema 2:1 and 3:1 Halyards
    • Spinlock flip flop PXR cam cleats for easy sail raising/dropping
    • 2nd Spinnaker halyard slot
    • 2nd, longer narrow profile rudder blade
    • Raymarine Racemaster Solar Powered Speed and Depth

These VPLP designed Astus 20.5s have been in big demand in the UK and used models don’t often come onto the market. So, register your interest early and be one of the first to view this little pocket rocket!
