Finnish builder Botnia was one of the first manufacturers to really take on the ‘boat for boat’s sake’ mantle with its Targa range so it should come as little surprise that the main challenge to the Targa throne comes from the same country.

Sarin Marine has been making island hoppers for its local market since the 1960s, but more recently has been looking to the world stage for its new range of Minor Offshore powerboats, with this model, the Minor Offshore 28, being the second smallest in its range.

Price excludes VAT.
