Broker's Comments

Built originally as a customs launch it is believed to have done service in Scotland and the East Coast. Decommissioned around 1980 it has had two owners since. The current owner, an experienced seaman, has cruised far and wide including regular visits to Holland and a three month trip to Spain. He has now decided to give up boating.
No doubt a strong and seaworthy craft it could do with external and internal refurbishment and will then continue to give reliable and comfortable service.
