The Fortissimo 33 is a great sea boat, later boats became the Mariholm 33. Designer Lars Olaf Norlin preferred to retain traditional qualities at a time when fin keeled production yachts were taking off. He did modernise the rig, putting a fractional rig on for extra tuning abilities.
This yacht has huge potential for extended cruising in safety and comfort at such an appealing price. She has a very good sail wardrobe, good windvane steering and may only need some new owner customising... interior, electronics etc.
Stored ashore now, she needs new anodes and a new cutlass bearing. Recent upgrades have been a new alternator, new SEASTAR engine controls, new OEM exhaust mixing elbow and new JABSCO head parts and service.
Full forward the vee-berth has a fill in to make a double and the bathroom just aft on the port side with a large wardrobe opposite. The saloon has a settee each side of the drop leaf table. Traditional forward facing nav desk and secure sea going galley. The quarter berth, aft on port side is a good size. Headroom is 1.82m. Upholstery was new in 2015.
