The Finesse 24 is a compact lift keel cruising yacht with a strong following thanks to their charming lines and surprising accommodation. Frith has been in the same ownership since 1991 and is truly a superb example, by far the best we have seen. Her beautiful condition reflects the love and care that her owner has invested into maintaining her over the years and she is now in need of a new custodian to keep her in the manner she is accustomed to. If you are looking for a characterful wooden yacht in tip top condition we would strongly recommend an early viewing! Viewing by appointment through our Essex office - Phone number removed -
