Whilst the Tofinou 7 has been widely admired, there has been demand for a boat with a more spirited performance in particular in light weather. On deck the Tofinou 8 is sleek, elegant and extremely easy to manage. Underwater she has a modern hull profile with very efficient keel and rudder. Tofinou 8s are used on the classic regatta racing scene in the Mediterranean and as daysailors throughout the waters of Europe.
Overnight accommodation is afforded by a generous V berth and interior facilities to include cabin lighting, two settees and a chemical toilet located below the berth. When the wind and tide are no longer in your favour, a 10hp nanni diesel engine with saildrive and foldable propeller pushes you home at nearly 7 knots.
The Tofinou 8 is also available as a lifting keel version for those who sail in shallow waters.
