Osborne 37

by Brian Lovelock

Osborne Express Cruiser 37

I have recently purchased "Finnesse" and was wondering if any one has any historical information on her?

She was built in 1968 and is fitted with twin perkins T6354s

I believe she was called "Lilliana 2" at some stage.

I am carrying a ground up restoration of her to bring her back to her former glory.

Much work has already been carried out by her former owner with the Hull refurbished and sheathed with the West system.

She is mahogany on oak and of traditional hard chine construction.

A very flared bow makes her look like a scaled down MTB!!

Next stage is to get the engines running and sort out the electrics.

A great project for this summer.
