Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
A fine example of the 33ft Bates Starcraft featuring an enviable aft cockpit complete with smart canopied cover which gives a gentleman's launch type feel to the boat aft of the skipper's seat, as there is straight access from the external area of the boat through the saloon to the leather seating area. Forward of the steering and passenger seating are the steps down to the contemporary galley to port and the large shower and head to starboard. This area then leads through to the forward V berth sleeping area with full height hanging cupboards and drawers in the original varnished mahogany finish.
This is a boat for the connoisseur who requires comfortable cruising combined with good entertaining space.

Revarnished in 2010 at Dennetts in Chertsey, The boat comes with BSS certificate, EA licence and a full length winter cover. Please note the Engines are 1600cc Not 1600hp. This is a rare opportunity to own a classic River Cruiser, That could also be used as a liveaboard.
