Sea Finn?

Good morning,

I have been searching for any information on the Sea Finn Oy products. I

cannot even find an owners group to ask questions.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Maybe it's the way

I am typing in the query.

Best regards,

Mike

Re: Sea Finn?

I assume you mean Daly's Seafin Teak Oil. The manufacturer's web page is here: SeaFin Teak Oil : DALY'S : Paint and Decorating / Wood Finishes

Re: Sea Finn?

Hi Mike.

The company mentioned below, Seafinn Yachts Oy manufactured mostly (only?) one-off yachts in the past years. Apparently the owner passed away last year, and it may be the company has no activity any more. The yard was located quite close to where I live.

We have several Sea Finn 411 motorsailers at my boat club. I heard the hulls were ordered together at the same time and a lot was drawn, who got his first.

Is there something specific you want to know?

Markus

Thank you for the reply Markus .......

Trying to find info on the company, quality, pro/cons, strong points/weak
points, etc, etc.

Were the boats factory built completed and/or owner completed? Which models did the build and how many?

To me, SeaFinn and Nauticat look like twins ... was one company and spinnoff
of the other?

Best regards,

Mike

Re: Sea Finn?

I've not been on a Sea Finn boat myself, though my neighbor at the winter dock is a 41*. Below information is mostly from Finnish web discussions.

Many of the earlier boats were owner completed, but there are yard finished yachts also. Earlier models have glass hull and wooden superstructure, but later models are full glass, with optional teak decks. For the serial boats the designer is different from Siltala (Nauticat) yachts, but apparently there are some persons from Siltala who joined Sea Finn. They do share many design principles.

Build quality should be excellent, also the interior woodwork on yard finished yachts.

Most popular model was the 39 with canoe stern which looks a lot like a Nauticat. The 41 and 411 models have a vertical transom. Some yachts have a added swim platform/extra length. There are other models, but little information available.

One example of more recent one-off yachts by the yard is s/y Anya, which is often docked in the center of Turku. A stunning boat: . : S/Y Anya : .

Sorry can't be of more help.

Markus

Thank you once again ...

I stumbled across S/Y Anya, but did not think about it being a Sea Finn
product.

I saw on the stern that some of the 411's looked different but could
not find a close up pic to see what it was used for or being used.

Do you know if any of your club members are on this forum?

Best regards,

Mike

Re: Sea Finn?

The 41 series has different transoms, some may be later additions. The one's at our yard all have a laminated swim platform with a huge vertical hatch in the master cabin at the transom. Some boats have just a simple vertical transom, without the swim platform.

Don't think any club members frequent here, but you never know...

Re: Sea Finn?

Hi.
I am owner of a SeaFinn 411 together with my husband. The yacht has been sailing in the Mediterania for many years but has also been into the canals from Denmark to France and return. We have owned the boat for the last 4 years and the first year we visited the Aaland islands where we in Mariehamn met three other Seafinns from Finland. Their owners were all members of a finish Seafinn club. Unfortunately we missed to get some contact information and I have searched for the club without finding anything.

In Denmark as far as I know there are 4 seafinns (one on its way from Greece) with different stories.

If you want pictures, look at the links thistle.lyhne-viesmose.dk (our boat), seafinn.dk another boat starting as a 39er ending as a 43er, Sejner.com (trip from Denmark to mediterania and back) and General lying in Greece returning over some years to Denmark.

The hull of the Seafinns are thinner than the Nauticats, the strength is made by stringers which runs from bow to stern. This causes the Seafinns to have less weight. Also the draft is only 1.55 meters which is wery good for going in the canals, but if you have to go against the wind, you have to use the engine.

you are welcome back for further cuestions and I will try to answer
