An exemplary example of this bluewater classic. With the current owner for 10 years, 'Finequala' has been comprehensively maintained and upgraded. She has been lightly used over the 8 seasons she has been afloat. From October to May each year she has been on the hard, under covers with sails removed and an interior fan heater installed. A stunning yacht, she is in full working order, extensively equipped and ready now for long distance voyaging. Vancouver 34 Pilots are renown for the quality of their build and their handling, so this is a rare opportunity to own an offshore thoroughbred.
