Who the Archer Adventure 72 is designed for:

The Archer Adventure Series 72 was conceived to be and designed to provide, a seaworthy vessel capable of comfortable long periods aboard, easily managed and operated by two people. Putting a premium on practicality, safety, sea kindliness – in keeping the crew comfortable and secure in all conditions, while ensuring maintenance, upkeep, and general fuss – is kept to a minimum.

The Archer Adventure 72 is a rock solid coastal cruiser that will allow you to fulfill your dreams and beyond should the desire arise.

The large swim step and cockpit allow easy transition between the vessel and the water. Dinghy’s, kayaks, paddleboards, swimming, fishing, crabbing, even docking are all made easy by the layout. This is key to ensure all potential opportunities to enjoy the environment are seen as enjoyable and fun rather than tedious and complicated.

The large yet secure aft cockpit allows easy rest and relaxation, an area for small ones to safely play, space to have cocktails with guests or dine, and an area aboard to enjoy the outdoors in comfort and security.

The entry door and opening aft glass allow the natural transition from the interior saloon and galley, to the aft deck. This opens up opportunities for lounging, dining, entertaining, and living aboard in a way that smaller, disjoined spaces typically found afloat, do not.

The standard cabin arrangement forward provides two generous cabins and two heads with showers. The forward cabin accommodates a large owners berth, plenty of hanging locker and drawer space along with a desk/vanity.

The helm position affords the operator command of gear and systems, as well the best view. With plenty of room for books, charts, computers, electronics, and all the kit that may come with authority of the helm, this interior station is located to ensure comfort in any condition or sea state.

Engine room and systems space has been optimized to allow full and easy access for easy maintenance and upkeep.

On deck you will find easy to navigate side decks, storage for dinghy’s, kayaks and paddleboard, and oversized ground tackle to ensure a peaceful nights rest when on the hook. A forepeak storage compartment is easily accessed and large enough to accommodate fenders, dock lines, etc.
