Broker's Comments

The current owners have owned this vessel for the last 15 years during which time she has been completely renovated to a very high standard with most domestic facilities on board. She is a heavily built seaworthy vessel.

Until recently has been operated as a commercial dive charter business and could be returned to an operating commercial vessel.

The whole vessel is in very clean and tidy condition with a lovely comfortable homely feel below and a good strong and sea worthy working layout on deck. The hull and decks have just been repainted.

This converted MFV is ideally suited to long distance cruising and liveaboard use. She looks ready to provide comfortable living from the moment you move aboard.

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