Broker's Comments

This famous Devon lady has had a number of interesting roles in her long history. She was originally commissioned as a rescue motor launch and served her country during the Second World War before taking up life as a ferry locally.

Her current owner bought her when she was retired from service and has spent considerable time, money and love converting her into a beautiful, luxurious home with all modern conveniences without detracting from the wonderful historic features around the boat.

She is still fully seaworthy and has completed several cruises with her owners, their family and friends providing a fantastic and much admired living space wherever they have been.

We have many more pictures, documentation and history about this unique vessel and would be pleased to provide more information please contact us
