The Fortissimo 33 is a great sea boat, later boats became the Mariholm 33. Designer Lars Olaf Norlin preferred to retain traditional qualities at a time when fin keeled production yachts were taking off. He did modernise the rig, putting a fractional rig on for extra tuning abilities.
This yacht has huge potential for extended cruising in safety and comfort at such an appealing price. She has a very good sail wardrobe, good windvane steering and may only need some new owner customising... interior, electronics etc.
The yacht was ashore for a couple of years and was re launched in this year with all new seacocks, new cutlass bearing, new PSS shaft seal, anodes and antifouled at the end of January 2019. The engine has routinely serviced.
Full forward the V-berth has a fill in to make a double and the bathroom just aft on the port side with a large wardrobe opposite. The saloon has a settee each side of the drop leaf table. Traditional forward facing hinged nav desk and secure sea going galley. The quarter berth, aft on port side is a good size. Headroom is 1.82m. Upholstery being replaced presently.
