This is the first model designed by both Jeppesen & Pons. The Arcona 50 is an impressive craft, a 50-footer with twin rudders and a higher freeboard and wider stern. These features allow for more stability and really leans into the easy sailing quality that the Arcona 50 encapsulates so well. This is complemented by the push button control, which means that it is easy to sail even if short-handed. The Arcona 50 was expertly fitted with Flexiteek 2G. Flexiteek 2G has a realistic fine-grain finish and adds to the style and function of the boat. As it cools 30% faster and is up to 35% lighter than traditional composite decking.
