Finnsailer 34

In 1977 the Finnish company Fiskars

launched a 38ft (8.5m) ketch as a more

performance orientated sister to its

existing range of long

keeled motorsailers.

The Finnsailer 34 is

a smaller version

which appeared a

year later.

Designed by

Hans Groop, she

has a fin and

skeg under

water profile

which allows

very capable


performance. The

original engine was

a 36hp Perkins

4.1 08. She has a

centre cockpit protected by a high doghouse and small aftercabin

giving a total of six to seven berths. There is a generous galley.

heads amidships and an outboard facing chart table. She is well

built and comfortable and a solid familycruiser.
