Broker's Comments

Over the last few years we have become very choosy with wooden boats, bearing in mind the number that need attention, we reject more than we become involved with. So it was a pleasant surprise to come across this quite early Gentleman's launch which has been subject to a total restoration by the last owner.

I always think that the best way to buy something old is to let someone else have the dubious pleasure and expense of doing the work before you step in to reap the rewards. This is very much the case here, the boat has a glowing survey and no issues at all.

Doubling up as a cosy overnighter and a capable fishing boat this ticks a lot of boxes and is completely ready to go. A lovely boat which is very well priced for a quick sale.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
