Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

Now here is a substantial vessel with an interesting history.

We understand that she was constructed around 1940 for the MOD. This vessel was originally a 'picket boat'. After her attachment to the MOD she spent a few years doing other tasks until she was converted into her current configuration in the 1970's.

To date, she has only had four owners (including the MOD). She seems to draw people in to her as she has a lot of charm.

She offers really good accommodation which would lend itself to a 'liveaboard'. The owner informs me that she was surveyed in 2007 and that this resulted in a good report (purchaser should verify). However, the interior does need a revamp which can be seen in the photographs.

If you feel drawn to this caverness vessel and can spend a bit of time getting it back together then please contact me directly.

This Wooden Motor Cruiser 45' has been personally photographed and viewed by Suzzanne McDonald of Boatshed Medway. Click here for contact details.
