Broker's Comments

This McBryde 40 has been restored back to the original. Many man-hours have been spent re-planking the hull and laying new Iroko decks etc, all this under the watchful eye of a Master Shipwright. All that is needed now is a small amount of final finishing to give you a magnificent Gentlleman's Motor Boat.These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
