FC #33 Finesse available for sale

All things eventually end, and after 10 years with Finesse, I decided to make her available to someone who will use her for properly. For whatever reasons, I don’t have the time to cruise with her, so she should go to a new home and get to roam the seas, as she was intended to do. Currently, she is in Seattle, WA.

Hi Tom,

Finesse is the cleanest FC I have seen. I thought mine was clean, but does not compare to yours.

Just curious what your asking price is. I am considering selling “Essence” for the same reasons you have stated, and want a benchmark for my listing price.

Thanks in advance.

S/V FC “Essence” (formally Anne Marie)

Asking price?

So sorry for the delayed response. I don’t seem to get notifications when any new posts appear. Anyway, I have her listed at $79,900. I should check this posting more frequently. I did at first, but I suppose that slowed down.
