Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

A 'swish' looking former RAF rescue vessel dating from the 1950's. Solid wood carvel construction with sleak lines and powerful Perkins Engines. This vessel has been the subject of upgrading and refurbishment.

Classic lines and styling will give the owner a really classic vessel that should be the talk of any marina or boatyard where it is moored.

When I visited this boat I was struck by the space and the overall seakindly design. Gone are the days of picking up downed aircrew but this vessel has still got a lot of life and should make a really great vessel for the right owner.
If you wish to live aboard then she is all ready with the necessary creature comforts, a beautiful little ship.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
