Broker's Comments

Designed and built by A F Platt at his 'hideaway' yard in Thundersley Essex the Finesse 24 is a traditionally built clinker cruiser and is made of quality build and this particular one is a very lovely example. She has been restored by her present owner who is still currently updating her (further pictures to come once the decks have been prepared). The finesse has a deep cockpit and below decks her interior is surprisingly spacious with good head room and very traditional .
She is ideal for coastal cruising and has been recently reduced and is in need of a new owner for the coming season.

This Finesse 24 has been personally photographed and viewed by Andrea Drew/Will West of Boatshed Poole. Click here for contact details.
