    Default Finesse

    I am looking for information about Finesse 28 boats. I have read the short info in the YM of Feb'02 "A-Z of Second Hand Boats" but it is rather short one. Could anyone let me know about the stability and seaworthiness of these boats and theirs suitability for longer passages?
    Best regards.

    These boats are excellent shoal draught cruisers designed for the shallow and relatively sheltered waters of the East Coast of England. They are capable of coastal passage making but I would not recommend them for lond distance offshore work. They are tough enough, but the hull form and stability are not ideal for heavy open water conditions.

    See http://www.insyst.co.uk/tugela/ for a website about our finesse 27 (Virtually the same as a 28) which has been recently sold. We owned her for about 5 years, making many trips along the channel in all kinds of conditions, the worst being a SW F7 across Lyme Bay, she dealt with these conditions admirably but I would agree with JJs comments about her seaworthiness for offshore work.
