Tofinou 8 For Sale

The hull, marked by its straight bow and very flat stern lines, is very stable and excellent at all points of sail.
Performing well under a light wind or a breeze, the Tofinou 8, with its responsive helm, is a dayboat that offers sensations similar to those of a sport dinghy, easy to manoeuvre in solo sailing or with a small crew. Hull antifouled and polished, new sail drive anode, prop polished February 2022, just launched and decks cleaned, March 2022. A cradle and mast cradle are available.
