Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. This is the best example of a Finesse 24 I have seen. She has been with the current owner for 28 years, and oozes character. Apart from the coal fire, what makes this boat different is the quality of care the owner has invested in her, this is demonstrated by the set of covers, which add up to an all over cover, but which can be seperately removed. Look at the pictures of the hull, the prop, the engine and you can see how well she has been cared for. Boats like this one do not come along too often - my photographs cannot reflect how nice she is (especially as they were taken in a force 8).
