Artekno Oy, Finland  - International H-BOAT 27 Sloop
Artekno's H-Boat is clearly a well proportioned and fast yacht, which goes extremely well to wind-ward and accelerates rapidly thanks to her small wetted surface. She retains stability even in blustery conditions, because some 60% of her total weight is below the waterline. The keel accounts for about 50% of the boat's displacement. This craft is kept locally to the Broker and appears to be in good order (subject to survey). Known and local to the Broker.

At the moment, this remains a locker for stowage of loose gear and work-top to Starboard. The aft end of the berths are under the Cockpit seating. Between the berths is the short companionway to the Cockpit, with a good stowage space beyond. Up to the COCKPIT with integral bench seating to both sides and winches on the coamings.
