Custom Yachts Fintry

78' - Custom Yachts - 1972

New Zealand or the Northwest Passage ~ The MV FINTRY was made to fulfill your dreams & goals. FINTRY was one of sixty-four Fleet Tenders built for the British Royal Navy from 1963 through 1982. FINTRY’s keel was laid in 1970 and commissioned in 1972, by John Lewis & Sons, Ltd., in Aberdeen, Scotland, a notable commercial ship yard.

Notable that FINTRY was built to Class to Lloyd’s 100A1+ UK Coasting Service.

These overbuilt, quality vessels were made to operate in the North Seas around the UK, the Continent, and the English Channel. There were four different deckhouse configurations, however their hulls and machinery were identical. This design was to accommodate 100 passengers or 25 tons of cargo in two holds and on deck. A thorough history of this vessel’s log has been created by the Owner. After approximately 25 years in service to the Royal British Navy, the Navy decided to privatize her work and then the vessel had to adopt the MCA (British Coastguard) safety regulations. Again, the vessel received some professional upgrades and benefited from other significant modifications. Vessel received an extended deckhouse, new placement of bulkhead, some hatches were plated over, and holds were left unused in this service.

There were four different deckhouse configurations, however their hulls and machinery were identical. This design was to accommodate 100 passengers or 25 tons of cargo in two holds and on deck.

Again, the vessel received some professional upgrades and benefited from other significant modifications. Vessel received an extended deckhouse, new placement of bulkhead, some hatches were plated over, and holds were left unused in this service.

Eventually the vessel was sold in 2001 and then the current owners bought her in 2002. Again, major modifications were made by a Yard with great experience. Wheelhouse was extended 4′, a new Caterpillar 3406 was installed for main power, two Northern Lights generators were installed, a bow thruster was installed, a GYRO Stabilizer unit was installed, and the hull was stripped to white metal and repainted. Rub rail was replaced all around. Two new fuel tanks of 1,800 USG each, were added along with two new water tanks of 500 USG each.

The handsome MV FINTRY is ready for a new owner. Strong, charming, capable, sea-worthy, and efficient: consumes one USG of fuel per one nautical mile at 8.5 kts.

If you are looking for a superb sea boat and have an adventurous spirit, we invite you to come and inspect this small ship.
