More details on Fintry Yacht for sale
Rarely does a vessel of this quality come on the market. To add to the advantage, the owner and his wife have owned this vessel since 2002. They had previously circumnavigated the Globe on a sailboat. They have modified, upgraded, and carefully maintained this vessel while still crossing the Pond (Atlantic Ocean), and cruising the Northeast part of North America, both the sea side including the Canadian Maritimes and the Great Lakes area, including 40 locks; a total of 18,000 nm. Can this boat be run by a couple (with crew for voyages)? Yes, definitely and it's been proven. The Owner's will be most gracious and assist with a transition and training, to a new owner.
Accommodations and Interior
FINTRY will sleep 8 in four staterooms or cabins. There are two additional berths in the wheelhouse for those keeping watch. The Master Stateroom is below, has a King size bed with ensuite bath and separate shower stall. There is a tub, an 8' closet and a 32" TV. Guest Stateroom #2 is on the main deck aft, with twin berths that roll out to make a king berth, also with ensuite head and shower. Guest cabin #3 is forward and below, with two bunks, ensuite head and shower. Guest cabin #4 is midships below, with two bunks and an ensuite head. All heads are Tecma and new in 2008. In the aft mid-section of the vessel there is a 1,750 US Gal. holding, black water tank. There are two 500 US Gal. fresh water tanks. One 1000 US Gal. non-potable water tank. Hot water is supplied by a 50 US Gal. Torrid Marine water heater (2018) fired electrically, or off a boiler or using genset waste heat. Heat for the accommodations can be supplied by Way Wolff 917-6C, 50,000 BTU diesel fired ship's boiler (2008) for extremely cold weather. The vessel also has Dometic 4Ton variable expansion valve water chiller with Reverse-Cycle heat. Air conditioning in warm weather and heat in cooler weather is therefore supplied, without the diesel heater. There are seven fan units, six zones, each with separate thermostat. There is a Maretron TMP100 for temperature and FPM100 for pressure (2017).
INTERIOR Interior is an evolution of changes and modifications made over the years.This vessel can carry the description of 'Charming' in its own class.Not a typical 'White Boat' - yacht made of fiberglass.Salty, rugged, and historically interesting.The interior of much of the vessel has been constructed of Birdseye maple, Tiger mahogany paneling and teak flooring that came from the 1952 refit done in Italy of the famous Thomas Lipton J Boat named SHAMROCK V. Saloon has two 30" TV's, back-to-back and a Korg G1 Air piano. Should be mentioned at this point, that the vessel is stabilized by a Quick MC2X 56K GYRO Stabilizer mounted below deck in the engine room, which was added in 2019.Truly a superb addition to make this sea-worthy vessel more comfortable.
