Broker's Comments

After twenty years of lovingly bringing this old lady back from the sad hulk that she was, the owner is now wishing to retire and downsize. He has done a considerable amount of work in restoring and converting this former fishing trawler to a lovely vessel to liveaboard. There is still work to be done and plenty of opportunity to add your own mark to the interior fit-out of the vessel but she is able to be motored and lived on as she is now. The current swing mooring may be available by arrangement with the owner.

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