    I see one right in Annapolis every once in a while, which I suspect is this one. Gorgeous boat. -Mike

    Fino

    Yeah Mike that's probably the one, the owner lives somewhere in Severna Park and keeps it on the Magothy,I noticed you have a V drive Nova, I always wanted one,There were a few that ran around Annapolis when I had the Fino, I also had a 73' Wellcraft Nova(Purple)wTwin 188's, I sold It to buy the Fino. There was another Fino around too,It was blue wih a white deck owned by a lawyer that kept it on the Severn but it's gone now I think it went to Del.The only other one around here is the Yellow/Orange one that is on bodkin creek with diesels in it now.

    Cool. (As for always wanting a v-drive Nova, everything's negotiable in this world, right? )

    The yellow/orange one on the Bodkin, that's GOTTA be another of the "Purely Pleasure" family, no? (I think the guy who owns a marina with rack storage up there has had a bunch of yellow/orange boats, at least one of which back in the 80's was a big Magnum, and there have been replacements of larger size over the years. All named "Purely Pleasure" or something similar I think. So I'm curious if the yellow/orange Fino is in that family--as the yacht tender or pleasure runabout to some bigger sibling.) -Mike

    P.S. Curious whereabout you are here--I'm right in Annapolis and my Nova is at Bert Jabin's on Back Creek, off the Severn.

    Fino

    No, mine is blocked on my lot next to my house, although I did look at the one you saw(Not to Purchase),That ones pretty rough for the price, I would sell mine cheaper than that and it's all redone.

    -----Well Tom,,,This is interesting. I would have said the last Fino was built in 1973 as you note. Out in Washington state, though, at the company that builds the new ones they claim they have a restored 1975 Fino for sale ($199,000). I really wondered about that when I saw it.
    -----I have heard about a white one that was in in your general vicinity. Im not sure they made another.
    -----The "Purely Pleasure" guy keeps his Fino at "Ocean Reef" outside Key Largo during the cold months along with his newer 70 some foot ocean race style boat. It may be a Magnum, but Im just not sure. I met him once but cant remember his name. The Fino is definetly in that family. The reason for the "orange/red" combos is that supposedly he is color blind and he finds those shades of orange and red pleasant.
    -----Is the Bertram 28 you refer to a 28 Baron??? Another one of my all time favorites!!!
    -----Go get that white one back. You deserve it.......Bill S
