Aluminium boat

Husky R8

The Husky R8 is a well built aluminium boat which is equally agile as ready for comfort. Thanks to its well designed aluminium hull, the Husky R8 takes rough sea in an agile and easily manoeuvrable manner. In this aluminium boat the high performance is clearly noticed when the adjustable offshore seats make sure that the driver and the passengers sit ergonomically and comfortably – in all kinds of weather. In the fore, there is an L-shaped sofa which contributes to high comfort for your passengers. The high windscreen protects all your passengers and you sit comfortably and safely in the big U-shaped sofa in the aft. A space that may also be converted into a big sun deck when the weather allows. The Husky R8 aluminium boat is the perfect choice if you respect high quality, space and our smart design solutions.

Smart design

At Finnmaster, we have designed and manufactured boats at our boatyard in Finland for 30 years. Over these years, we have worked hard to develop smart solutions that, for example, mean there is always somewhere for you to stow the fenders, just seconds after casting off. Nor do you need to move the cushions when you want to stow anything in the storage space. We call our concept Smart Design. It means we tailor the form to the content to make life at sea easier – whatever you use your boat for. These solutions do not only help to tie together well thought-out and practical details with smart and modern design they mean above all that the skilled captain and the curious novice can both have wonderful experiences at sea.
