reasonable side decks, rails to coachroof top, teak each side also looks smart.

twin big sldie back hatches TV antenna at front, Ertech Toughend glass screen means narrow pillars and little distortion to the view out.

starboard side, waste tank, with auto extinguisher attached

big sliding doors,

galley to starboard, ( diesel fired "Safe Flame" cooker and oven, NO GAS aboard, and no deciding if you need a new bottle etc..

whilst some people say they are a bit slow to start up, they are certainly FAR safer than having gas aboard,

dinette set to port, copilot seat shown facing forward,

tye upholstery is in excellent near new order, Table folds open twice the size,

Copilot seat now facing aft,

this seat will sit two with ease, and open door, and hatch over makes a great OPEN feel

helm set to starboard, the seat has a lifting Bolster so should you wish to stand at the helm it gives you room.

Battery indicator is set with heating controls left of shot

Fridge under the helm seat

domestic breakers and a handy 12v socket

exit right out of door, does help get on to pontoon in a hurry if single handed..

Neat dash, the narrow screen pillars do help great vision when the cover is off!

steps back up to saloon

loose carpet lifted to show starboard side engine space hatch,,

neat and clean in here, the right side ( as looking) also lifts once you have removed table and folded aft seat up,

FIRST worthwhile expense on a single engined craft in my view, good big filter change over,,

that is probably 85% of the reason for a problem at sea dealt with !

you can see the exhaust clamp on to the stainless pipe right of shot, which then splits in two to exit both side of the boat

NOTE this boat has a FAR better than standard one custom made and fitted as this is a common issue on these boats, (well, in my experience.)

note it has a drain and anode point fitted also, you can also see the water lubriacted shaft seal/ exit point here

the table is held by simple grub screws

port side , neat and tidy

smart well proportioned lines.

Bought by her current third owners in 2015, ( sold by James Dickens to previous owners also) The previous owner did some refitting to the boat especially addessing various slight common weaknesses on this model, The exhaust splitter, often with weeping welds etc by 5 years.. has been custom made at some expense FAR above the specification of the original. The shaft log fit and seal etc has been refitted , the dual fuel primary filter set up also shows the belt and braces approach of this and her previous owners. with stern thruster now, and recent electronics, and smart new canvas work she really "up together"

Broker's Comments Well this boat has to be the most "Sorted" example of this popular Coupe cruiser from Finland, Same designer as Nimbus boats and it shows, The easier cockpit access, side decks and especially the opening side doors always were difficult to argue with when comparing with The Nimbus 320, The big Yanmar will cruise her with a very relaxed feel, as well as give her a good top speed if required. very Nice.
