Finesse 21

£SOLD

The Finesse 21 was another popular shallow draft cruising boat for A.F. Platt on the east coast. His boats were designed to have a large internal volume for their length, shallow draft with a centreplate for creek crawling and a large comfortable cockpit. This boat has been well looked after in the present ownership with a lot of work done in 2014, sadly she is now an executor sale and needs some attention to paint and varnish due to a year of neglect. Spacious boat and very sensibly priced.
