Broker's Comments

Built for the Admiralty post war as a fleet tender this MFV is a genuinely seaworthy piece of maritime history. She benefits from a recent rebuild with new decks and wheelhouse and her Gardner engine has been rebuilt too. She is featured in Classic Boat and is well known on the Historic Ships Register and only for sale as her owner has seen an even older and tastier piece of history!
He’s a true enthusiast and a partner in a marine engineering business who has spent the last five years living and working on her. Her frames and timbers are massive and sound and at 60years old she is probably good for another 60 if she continues to get the tlc that she presently enjoys. She is a warm, clean and dry cosy home, and with a range of 2000 miles she could easily be a home in the sun!
