Finesse 24 no. 61 ‘Vela’ : £11,750

VELA is a much-treasured boat, which the present owner, now over 80 years of age, is sadly having to part with. She is in good condition and over more than two and a half decades has been a frequent sight along the English southwest coast and in the Scilly Isles. In that time, she has also undertaken six summer-long cruises in the spectacular scenery of the Scottish Hebrides. more…

Finesse 21 no. 37: Free, to a good home

The hull appears to be absolutely sound less a small repair in the port shear strake where some rot occurred behind the rubbing band. Below the waterline the planking is absolutely like new. The ribs also appear to be perfect.

As you can see it has stood untouched for some years now however has always remained dry under its cover. Structurally she is very good.

It has two new mahogany bulkheads inside and the deck and coach roof are three layers of glued 6mm ply ready for fibre glass sheathing.

My late fathers part restored 21. I found the sails which have revealed that she is number 37.

We also have a restored four stroke Stuart Turner engine which could be sold with the boat if required. She is currently in Hernebay.

It would be great if we could find someone to take her on and return her to the sea.
