Broker's Comments

They say that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, but I defy anyone to find fault with the looks of this pretty day boat!
Character Boats appear to have got it just about perfect (if that's possible?) with the Lune Whammel, a strange name but one that was used by the salmon fishers of Morecambe Bay - and my great uncle was one. His boat wasn't anything like as pretty as this though!
Day boats don't come much better than this in looks, build quality and value for your hard earned money. She's three years old, has been cosseted from new, and comes on a braked road trailer that has never been wetted.
