Overview

Thanks to its Finnish origins the Finnmaster Pilot 8 not only looks sportier than most, but it’s also robust and well-engineered. The mouldings are smoothly finished and heavily built, the stainless steel grab rails don’t flex and even the small fittings, such as hinges and latches, are chunkier than usual.
It’s also a supremely practical design with several lockers (five in the cockpit alone), integrated fender holders, grab rails everywhere and three smart oval-section cleats down each side. There’s even a folding bench and a dedicated storage slot for the table so you can convert the cockpit from a leisure-focused space with sun pad or dinette to a large open plan area.
The wheelhouse is offset to one side to make space for an impressively wide, deep side deck to starboard. More sun pads on the foredeck and a deep anchor locker with optional electric windlass further cement its role as an SUV of the sea.
The pair of 150hp Yamaha outboards deliver plenty of mid-range punch and in flatter conditions would enable the Finnmaster Pilot 8 to give many a sports boat a run for its money – even in lumpy seas and 30-knot winds she will still clock nearly 37 knots flat out.
Overall this is an extremely likeable craft with the build quality and versatility to be used all year round for fishing, watersports or weekend cruising jaunts, and has enough style to ensure it stands out from the crowd. If you’re looking for a compact family cruiser, there’s a lot to commend it.
