Here is a long distance cruising yacht of real note.  'Finale' is a round bilge steel cutter, built in Holland to Lloyds 100 A1 by Van Woven in 1991.  The Dutch gentleman who had her built commissioned the famous British designers Holman & Pye to bring something from the drawing board for outstanding seaworthiness and comfort.  Drawn by David Cooper, a partner in the firm, the hull was based on the Oyster 435.  Significantly, 'Finale' was not only designed and built to Lloyds 100A1 but the yacht was kept in 'Class' by rigorous ongoing surveys until 1996, documentation still onboard.  The yacht is therefore exceedingly well found with premium design features and materials.

A new GRP / PLY deck was installed in 2015.  It sits on a fabricated stainless shelf and the last part of the topsides are stainless. This ensures there can never be any rust or corrosion issues between the deck and the hull (this was as per the plans approved by Lloyds).  Additionally, there is a stainless steel rubbing strake.

The second owner bought the yacht in Holland for his planned trip to New Zealand and put it up for sale again upon reaching NZ.  He was very enthusiastic about 'Finale' and he sold it to the present owner who was also seeking a seriously capable offshore yacht for his planned adventures into the Pacific.  Mike has enjoyed the yacht and sailed single handed with ease.  The yacht is very well balanced under sail, Sailomat windvane or the linear drive Coursemaster autopilot and accomplishes very good daily runs, 150 - 180nm per day.

The main engine is the original Perkins with an estimated 4600 hours.  As per original plans, the engine can drive a huge bilge pump designed for fire fighting.  This is not in service presently but could be made so readily.

'Finale' underwent an extensive refit while in New Zealand when Mike bought her. The cutlass bearing and Volvo dripless seal were replaced. V drive Hurth Gearbox was rebuilt. Auto stream feathering prop was fitted in NZ, the pitch of these props can be adjusted both fwd and rev.  The engine runs very well and Mike changes the oil every 150 hours. A new Balmar smart regulator was also fitted (with spare regulator). 

There are many spares for the engine as well as all other equipment on 'Finale'. She is setup for long distance cruising and has an extensive spare parts list as well as necessary tools etc.

Behind the main engine sits the generator.  It is a FISHER PANDA 4Kva and has not been run for some time.  This may need servicing.

The 50 lph SPECTRA watermaker is pickled at the moment but was working when last used, Mike fitted a new pressure pump in Australia and a new membrane in Vanuatu.
