Broker's Comments

Alan Platt first designed and built the Finesse 21 building over 70+ boats. In response to demand he designed the Finesse 24 starting production in 1968 ending in the 1980’s with over 80 boats built. This one is a fine example of traditional yacht building. If you are looking for classic lines and expert craftsmanship in your next yacht then this example is worth a look.
