Listing Detail Tabs

This is a fast little yacht suitable for one or two crew. I am advised the yacht is a Finn, unsure of age. I used this yacht for around 10 years in our bay and had a ball doing so, its easy to set up and sail with one person, very very fast in a breeze. Its Kauri planked I am told and I had it clear coat fibre glassed above the water line around 6 years ago, then got crook and parked it in the garage where it has sat ever since as frankly age means I'm not nimble enough now to sail it.
Its a real shame to see it not used and the wife wants its gone so... Its generally in very good nick apart from a bit of paint lifting as shown, a crack on one side of the rudder and a small hole in the bendy mast again all shown in pictures, its never worried me so I didn't bother doing anything with it, beach trailer only. Someone will get a great little yacht here..This from questions last time listed, thank you Harold
" I would like to suggest that your boat is actually older than you think - not that it is a problem as it looks to be in excellent condition and may even add to the value. A finn with that number was registered under the name of Griffen and owned by a D Barron in 1963 and later owned R Widden of Nelson in 1971. The construction et would also indicate an era prior to 1980. Good luck with your sale, Harold (another classic boat enthusiast)" Please read the questions and answers for this listing.
