Description: Finn 8 EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NEW STANDING RIGGING
With its trawler style lines similar to the traditional vessel that fished the Northern Atlantic and Baltic Sea for centuries, the Finn 8 is a real head turner where ever it pulls in to port. Full of the olde world charm of the original Finnish hull design, this vessel is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Ideally suited to Tasmanian conditions with the true pilothouse, this vessel features a large engine with plenty of power, and the versatility of a mainsail and headsail. Ideally suited as a first boat, it is safe, capable, and comfortable in all conditions. This vessel is an excellent example of the design having been well maintained by its current experienced owner. With NEW STANDING RIGGING, A NEW HEADSAIL, ELECTRIC ANCHOR WINCH, AND EXCELLENT ELECTRONICS, it is sure to impress! This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy boating this summer for a minimal investment.
Stepping inside, the wheel house features a generous double V-berth, prefect relaxing at anchor, or over night stays. To starboard is a stainless steel sink with freshwater. There are two seats, so the crew can keep an eye on the skipper, and there is excellent visibility from this position. The helm station is very well appointed with engine controls, Lowrance chartplotter, depth sounder, and VHF Radio.
Stepping outside, the cockpit is a great space to relax on a fine day or try your hand at fishing. It also give access to the separate forward cabin which can be used as additional accommodation or for storage. There is easy access around the vessel with excellent hand holds in easy reach. With simple sailing systems, this vessel is ideal for a beginner, and forward is an electric anchor winch for easy anchoring.
