ASTUS 20.5 : COASTAL CRUISER

Astus 20.5, new 2018

Introduction

Easy to rig, handle and transport between stretches of water, the Astus concept responds to a real demand from sailors for high-performance, nomadic boats.

In line with our desire to offer outstanding, user-friendly products we are pleased to present our new model for the 2018 season, the Astus 20.5, following on from the Astus 20.2, over 120 versions of which have been sold to date.

Since the successful launch of the Astus 16.5 2 years ago, in partnership with VPLP naval architects, we have continued to improve our range. While remaining true to the original ASTUSBOATS idea, the introduction of more modern, streamlined designs has enabled us to offer our customers simple and efficient boats.

Born of a second collaboration with the VPLP Design Agency, the Astus 20.5, is set to appear on wish lists throughout the sailing community.

It retains all the features which made the Astus 20.2 so attractive and has even more character :

- Easy to rig and handle

- Transportable on the specially adapted trailer

- Retractable floats offer limitless travel opportunities.

- Economical, maintenance is minimal and garage storage a real possibility

- Nomadic, movement between stretches of water has never been simpler

- Personalizable, with multiple options to suit every sailing style

- Stable, with 930 litre floats

- Streamlined hull which enables the boat to glide through water and increases speed

- Tulipped hull for effective spray deflection.

- High-performance with modern, sporty lines

 

This new model has been presented at Boot in Düsseldorf last January and is on sale at a ready to sail (with mainsail and jib) price of 25 900€ including tax.


Two versions of the Astus 20.5 are available, each adapted to your style of navigation :
