The Finnsailer 29 is a sturdy, seaworthy and comfortable motor sailer, with a traditional style hull, attractive cruiser stern and a very spacious interior. The Finnsailer is well finished both inside and out and the layout, good headroom and facilities make this an ideal yacht for coastal distance cruising, or even living aboard. The shoal draft (only 1 metre) allows for shallow water coastal cruising and exploring estuaries, rivers and inlets. This Finnsailer 29, has been well maintained by her current owners with much recent expenditure. The boat is rigged for ease of handling and would be ideal for single handed cruising or for those who seek a less strenuous sailing experience. Viewing recommended at this sensible price.
