Finders of the Lost Yacht

The best friends Pertsa and Kilu love boating and want to help others as well, and they have big plans for their future. The sensible Kilu is trying to be the voice of reason and hold off Pertsa’s imaginative schemes, but creativity and adventure always win. The boys happen to get a hold of a bigger boat, and soon they’re already planning to expand their business into an international fleet. However, dark clouds are in the horizon as their parents are going through changes that threaten to take the boys away from each other. What’s more, there has been a robbery in the city bank, and Pertsa and Kilu get caught up in the mess. Still, things will always work out if you have dreams, and where there is a problem, there is a solution!
