Finesse 21, Carima

Sold World First currency convertor 

"Carima" is an exceptional traditional classic Finesse 21 gaff cutter, one of the last of her class to be built by Alan Platt at Thundersley, Essex in 1988. Only first class timbers were used - all planking, main frames, coachroof, deck beams etc are Iroko, steamed timbers are Danta (a durable tropical hardwood with excellent steam bending properties), and decks are glass fibre sheathed marine ply.

The hull is quite exceptional. there are no butt joints or scarfes in the planking and all ribs are sound - with no doubling or repairs.

She has just completed a full restoration with all paint and varnish stripped back to bare inside and out (including decks and bilges) and re-coated with Epifanes finishes (hull topsides are fully varnished). All interior joinery was rebuilt to a very high standard using Utile Mahogany to give comfortable 2 berth accommodation with plenty of storage, and in common with many other boats of her class the centreboard was removed and the case capped (the centreplate is available and could be replaced).

The original Yanmar 8hp was replaced with a new Beta 16hp diesel (2015) which gives her plenty of power. A low bulwark round the decks was also added greatly enhancing her traditional looks and making working on deck much safer.

Cooking is by Taylors paraffin cooker and there is a Davey Hoy-Pot solid fuel stove for winter warmth.
