A Classic Gentleman’s Motor Cruiser built in 1962 by Holland, Groves & Gutteridge, Cowes IOW to a design by L.A. Oliver. Beautiful steel work (just look at the lines and the bow!!) with wooden superstructure to enhance the classic appeal. Original teak decks have been replaced by Dek-King in 2010. The present owners do not know the size of the fuel, water and holding tanks but tell me they have sufficient water reserve for two weeks cruising for two people.
