Broker's Comments

A bit of a project. This Aquastar 27 is the aft cabin version it also has diesel twin engines. The central wheelhouse has a covered helm position and forward of the helm the forward cabin has the separate heads compartment, a navigation station and a very large double berth. Aft from the wheelhouse the aft cabin has the galley and a saloon area; the saloon table drops down to make another double berth.

The twin diesel Ford 4D engines (estimated at 80 hp each) will take the boat along at up to 12 knots.

We are advised that the engines do work but could do with an overhaul. The hull, topsides and cabin tops have been painted in the past and could do with repainting. The headlinings in the aft cabin need refixing and woodwork although sound needs refinishing.

The Aquastar hull is well thought os as a seaboat but would do equally well inland, the hull is solidly built. once complete this boat would make a competent cruiser.

These boat details are subject to contract.
