Broker's Comments

Having being completely rebuilt in 2010 by the Lowestoft marine training college this boat is in superb order. The engine was also fully rebuilt and has done only 50 hours since.
A truly superb interior is what make this boat stand out above the rest.
Last out of the water in April to be antifouled she is very much ready to enjoy. Sold with all curtains, tie backs, crockery, utensils and table lamps etc.
The desirable mooring can be transferred to the new owner if required
