This Finesse 24 is a fine example of a lovely wooden sailboat from the early 70’s.With it’s centerboard and beamy hull she’s perfect for shallow waters as well as very comfortable in windy conditions.Unfortunately, a complete overhaul was started a few years ago but before this could be finished the owner had to move abroad for work and the restoration didn’t get completed. As the yard she’s at in Poole, Dorset, wants their space back she’s not available without reserve! Please note she will have to be moved immediately after the end of the auction or a separate arrangement will have to be made with the yard.To give an idea of all that’s been done on her since she was hauled out:Centerboard is brand newCenterboard case is newSeveral frames have been replacedEngine has been replaced by newly refurbished one.Prop, shaft and bearing are all brand newGas locker and all hoses are all newGalley is 90% newFridge compartment is new and build in to the mahogany galley (top loader) but the cooling element and compressor are not included.Stem head has been replacedStainless bow roller is custom made and newAll deck and beadings are brand newHull has been back to bare and repainted.Below the waterline has been copper coated by professional shipwrightRudder has been repairedCockpit floor is newWinches are 2 x dual speed, self tailing, harkens (brand new)2 sets of good quality (not new) sets of sails.Custom chart table been madeDiesel heater fittedBrand new VHF included with DSC (never set up, so brand new)All through hull fittings are brand new Things I know need doing:Bulkhead needs re-varnishing (in cockpit)All varnish work will need touching up as she’s been outside for two seasons since I did it.Standing rigging will need to be replaced for insuranceInterior seating needs partial fittingMast and boom could use a coat of paint but are completely usableBottom has been copper coated (professionally) but this will probably need to be redone or antifouled as she’s been on the hard for some time since the work has been done.Additional photo are available on request and viewings can be arranged.She will be sold as-is and no returns are accepted.The winner will have to arrange transport immediately after the end of the auction (at own cost) or a storage deal has to be made with the yard.
