Finesse 21, Carima

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.

There are no broken or doubled ribs; all clinker planking is one-piece with no scarves or butts.

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).
