This Finesse 24 Lifting Keel yacht, Mariette,  was built by A. F. Platt of Thundersley, Essex, Iroko on Oak, in 1971. She has a Gaff Cutter Rig designed by Mark Butler of James Lawrence Sailmakers, Brightlingsea, with new Stainless Steel rigging and spars in 2001 and Sailspar headsail furling on both foresails.  She has been extensively renovated, including fitting new windows and 16hp Sole diesel and good electronics pack.

She offers 4 berths in two cabins and has a separate heads and good galley.  

Bought by the current owner in 2001, she has been refitted and maintained to the highest standard.

The Finesse 24 was designed and built by an East Coast yard specifically for exploring the shallow Thames Estuary rivers and creeks. Her shallow draft gives her the ability to get where most boats can't even think of going.  Her Gaff Cutter rig makes her one of the prettiest boats around with the ability to change sail area easily.
