This Finnmaster T7 video tour was filmed at the recent Southampton Boat Show.

When the Finnmster T8 was launched last year it was very well received. The only trouble was it lacked a high degree of snap with regards to performance, so we eagerly greeted the launch of the new Finnmaster T7. Despite being a metre shorter than the T8 it uses much the same hull configuration. You get a long swim platform that reaches pretty much to the back end of the cowling. You get a reversible nav seat, a dining station that can seat six people, and the same starboard walkthrough.




You also get much the same in the cabin, although to a lesser degree. You get a diagonal main berth, a fore and aft berth beneath the cockpit sole and you get a starboard heads.

With the F250 on the transom, this is a 42 knot boat, that's not bad, but it's only two knots more than the old T8, so perhaps those of us looking for that bit more snap in performance will have to wait until next year for the arrival of the T6.
