1973 Finesse 21
The Finesse 21 Mk1I was another popular shallow draft cruising boat from Alan 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 being sold due to the owners poor health. Spacious boat and sensibly priced for a quick sale.
