Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Rupert of Boatshed Chichester. Register or log in to see 39 more photos of this boat.This lovely traditional motor Yacht was built by the Admiralty and worked as an Admirals tender until 1925 when the steam turbines where removed and the petrol engines and sails where fitted. The sails and mizzen mast have long since been removed and now a deck saloon added aft of the wheelhouse.Below she gives a welcoming feeling of warm comfort although headroom in the wheelhouse is very low below it is much better. The engines would need a lot of work as the boat hasn't moved from its current position for some years. This Dunkirk Little Ship managed to save over 300 troops and represents a significant peice of British Maritime History. She could be available with the current residential mooring & beautifull view(lease hold) although as such the asking price is double that advertised herein. These boat details are subject to contract.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Disclaimer The particulars detailed herein are intended to give a fair description of the vessel but their accuracy cannot be guaranteed. These particulars are not and shall not form part of any offer or contract for the sale of the vessel and are supplied on the understanding that all negotiations shall be through Boatshed, who act as agents for the vendor.
