Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
Birchwood boats have always been associated with quality build and design and this Birchwood 400 Crusader epitomises this fact. This boat has a great combination of elegance and sturdyness. In this day and age of economic prudence she ticks all the boxes too. Her Volvo engines are not too juicy but still have enough grunt to do the job. The interior is comfortable and well appointed, allowing for 3 good double berths. She is an ideal family boat and would make a good houseboat too. Easy to handle with twin engines and bowthruster, rear view camera, side mirrors make her a delight to helm from the flybridge or interior helm. There has been approximately £17,000 on updating her navigation gear, servicing the engines, antifouling, changing anodes, new canopy covers and safety equipment etc over the last couple of years. She now has a boat safety certificate too and a favourable survey. So you can be confident that she is a good investment. Sensibly priced too. Her owners have had an unforseen opportunity come their way and that is the reason she is 'for sale'.
