Broker's Comments

If you are looking for a budget part project fishing boat/day-boat for messing about on the river, this one looks great value. It comes with a recently serviced engine (Oct 2011) which powers the boat along at up to 18knots. The trailer looks good too and we understand it is only about 4 years old. It is in need of some TLC in parts particulary the interior but still a good value boat for what it is.
