Broker's Comments

This boat is currently fitted out as an attractive live-aboard but would be capable of making seafaring passages. As an ex Trinity House Pilot vessel, built to Lloyd's A1 standards, it is substantially constructed with powerful proven engines

This boat presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a fully operational houseboat. It has easy access to local facilities and main road & rail transport routes into London

The vessel is moored in the heart of Ipswich in a locked private marina and a fully serviced pontoon mooring would be available by separate negotiation if required

These boat details are subject to contract.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
