An old mahogany finn

Hello fellow sailors!

This mahogany Finn sailboat has been sitting in my father's garage for over a decade unused. It's a shame so we've decided it's time for her to find a better owner. As I've discovered after closer inspection it was made by Raudaschl Austria - a company that's still producing sailboats today. I reckon it was made in 1972 judging by the marking on the aluminium mast, but the hull which is still in pristine condition might be even older. There is a potential buyer interested in this sailboat and I was wondering if any of you might know what a fair price for this boat might be? I don't want to set an outrageous price tag nor get lowballed. I've uploaded photos to

Thanks for help

Re: An old mahogany finn

What a beautiful old boat! A little online research revealed that there are generally two categories of Finns - modern race-ready Finns and classics. Yours is a classic, albeit a pristine one. It appears that the classics aren't competitive with the modern boats, so, they are only likely to appeal to people who aren't interested in racing them seriously, but who just love classic old quality boats. I saw some used modern race ready Finns with asking prices of $7,000-8,000. I would probably ask about half that for a pristine beauty like yours, and then look for a serious offer. I would love to own it, but I already have too many boats and too many slip fees.

The boat is located on the island of Hvar in the Adriatic sea, but transport can be easily organised within central Europe. And thanks for the price estimate.
