Broker's Comments

This Newhaven Sea Warrior appears to be solidly built and well maintained and is like a scaled down Mitchell 31 - some would say even better, with great seakeeping qualities. The owner ran the engine while I was onboard and it sounded sweet, but I am not a mechanic! An excellent design for recreational or light commercial fishing with her comfortable cabin with three berths and a small galley and heads combined with the large external cockpit space which gives ample room for several fisherman and all their tackle.
Only for sale due to poor health.
