Broker's Comments

The 211 was designed by Finot as an ultra-modern fast cruiser/racer - in style very much a miniaturised Open 60. A combination of very high sailing performance for her size and accommodation for up to four made them an extremely popular regatta class.

They are said to sail very much like a dinghy however have the safety benefits of being unsinkable thanks to integral foam buoyancy and self righting.

This particular boat has been enjoyed as a day sailor and well looked after, has new sails, engine and covers and sits on a road trailer ready to go. The outboard engine is lightly used and stored ashore.

Perfect for a sailing family looking for a bit more comfort and versatility than a dinghy or for anyone who would like an easy to maintain boat that's fun and fast to sail
