Broker's Comments

This Fiskars Finnrose 45 ketch is what cruising and living aboard for prolonged periods is all about. She has most home comforts fitted giving the owners a very comfortable living space.

She benefits from a very high level of continuing expenditure and maintenance which includes backup systems for cabin heating, hot water, battery charging and water desalination. She also carries extensive engine spares.

She is equipped for hot climates with 12 opening ports and cold climates with her extensive heating systems which also include the option of pre heating the engine if required. Her huge storage capacity including walk in lazerette 6 months propane capacity, dedicated sail bin and lockers a plenty down below ensure you can carry everything you need and the workbench in the forepeak means you can fix it too.

This bluewater ketch represents a truly globetrotting self sufficient home that is equally happy moored in a marina or rounding Cape Horn. She has proved her capability already and is pretty much ready to go again.
