Woodmouse is a good example of the Finesse 21, a much loved and capable East Coast cruising yacht with shoal draft capabilities. She has been regularly maintained including a comprehensive refit in 2015 including a new deck and coachroof, and benefits from an excellent suit of sails and a Yanmar 1GM10 diesel inboard engine. Now ashore for easy inspection and for sale as her owner has decided the time has come to give up sailing, she is believed to be in very sound condition, with just the usual brightwork and general maintenance required ready for next season.

Viewing by appointment through our Essex office on (01621) 785600.
