Broker's Comments

This is an ex inshore lifeboat which has just been replaced by a new one following possible adoption by the RNLI of the independent station it was used on. Regularly maintained and with engines replaced two years ago she would make a superb leisure, work or safety boat. She is being sold by the Lifeboat Trust who owned her and proceeds will go back into supporting the Portishead lifeboat station.
These boat details are subject to contract.
