Pilot 8 is a real multi-purpose boat.

Whether you’re looking for a SUV boat, fishing boat or weekend boat where the whole family can stay overnight – this is just the right motorboat for you. The boat’s redesigned extended roof provides protection from rain and sunshine for those staying in the aft deck. The spacious wheelhouse has a large full-width sunroof and a four-person dinette, and a well-equipped galley for travel comfort. At the forward cabin, you will find plenty of storage space as well as a large, separate toilet and sleeping berths for four adults. The boat has versatile and comprehensive standard equipment, which includes, e.g., Yamaha fully electric steering and optional Yamaha autopilot and joystick control.

Layout and smart design

At Finnmaster, we have designed and manufactured boats at our boatyard in Finland for more than 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.
