Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

Well here is an interesting vessel. This is a converted lifeboat. The origins, design and methods of construction are as you would expect for a lifeboat. She is solid and steady.

This vessel has been converted into a well thoughtout motor launch which would be ideal for coastal cruising and fishing. She has a large and open cockpit which will comfortably take a number of anglers or give enough room for 'mooching' around on a sunny day and watching the world go bye. Preferably with a drink in one hand!

The boat has a covered wheel house with good all round vision. There is a reasonably sized forward cabin which has a galley with standing headroom. The saloon seating is ample and it converts into sleeping berths. Long weekends and overnighting would be easily accommodated.

If your in the market for a coastal motor launch with an ample cockpit then you should be coming down to the Medway to take a look. This is a bigger boat than you might expect.
