Extract from Sail;
One of the new generation of small boats coming out of Europe, aboard which aesthetics are as important as performance, the Tofinou 8 is also packed with interesting features that allow you to do a lot more than just go for a spin around the harbor. Like it’s big brother, the Tofinou 9.5, the Joubert and Nivelt-designed also features a look that is modern, without being overly edgy: think a pocket Wally design, with a little bit of old-fashioned New England-style elegance.


We are proud to offer for sale a one owner from new, 2015 model of the popular Tofinou 8 finished in dark grey. This boat has been stored ashore every winter for any essential maintenance and upkeep, a stunning day sailer that will impress in any marina.

Finished to an exacting standard the boat boats varnished mahogany cockpit coamings covering the halyards and sheets, as well as the teak cockpit and decks give the Tofinou a chic and classic style.
