Broker's Comments

Bantam tugs were widely used by BW and many built in the 60's are still in use as working boats.
They have quite a cult following to this day.This one has recently had a new steel wheelhouse and has been used by the present owner as a push tug for a butty.
She could be used as a fun leisure vessel or a working boat and looks much better when not covered in ice!These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
