Description: Finn 8
Finn 8 - perfect first boat offering the versatility of trailerable storage option. Economical 20hp Yanmar Diesel, with 1500 hours, chart plotter/depth sounder and auto pilot. She's got plenty of olde world charm but highly practical too which comes from her characteristic unmistakable design, which dates back to an original Finnish hull design. This is a great way to start boating. The 'Finn 8' metre is descended from a style of trawler that fished the Northern Atlantic and Baltic Sea for centuries. The V hull is type typically Scandinavian with full, gently curved hull sections and a wide flaring bow which will throw away any swell and keep passengers free from spray and the waves.

My mission was to explore the waterways of Australia. I have trailered this boat across the Nullarbor East to West then across the top Australia. She is easily towed by a Landcruiser.
Your mission if you accept it, is to continue the search and locate your dream destination.
