1966 Finesse 21 Mk1 £1,995
The Finesse 21 Mk1 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, 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. Please call our Kent – Chatham Office+44 - Phone number removed -
