After 20 years of dreaming and 5 years of actively searching for the perfect yacht, the SeaFinn 411 was love at first sight for us. And with 11 years of full-time cruising now behind us, ‘Thistle’ has indeed fulfilled every expectation.
She is a powerful ketch-rigged motorsailor. ‘Thistle’ combines good sailing performance with a strong engine to maintain speed in all conditions. Her large pilot house with second helm and forward facing nav station has excellent visibility for comfortable all-weather sailing. Her semi-full keel provides sea kindliness, safety, and comfort.
‘Thistle’s strength and seaworthiness have been thoroughly tested in the Baltic, North Sea, and Mediterranean. And, with masts removed, her shoal draft enabled us to enjoy the inland waterways of Europe. She is truly a versatile yacht. Aboard ‘Thistle’, cruising is an enjoyable experience. Her layout and accommodation make life aboard a pleasure whether under way, swinging at anchor, or sitting at the dock. With classic good looks — teak decks, rails and interior — she draws admiring comments wherever we sail.
‘Thistle’ had extensive refits in 2000 and 2006. Superbly equipped, upgraded, and maintained for long range cruising, she is ready to go.
