Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. Originally built in the 40s, in Scotland, her first incarnation was as a fishing boat. She was then used by the Navy as a tender before being converted in the 60s. She is obviously an ideal boat for a live-aboard, with great accommodation throughout. But to plop her on a berth and not move would be a shame, as she is a robust ocean-going boat, with good levels of navigation and safety equipment.
