Broker's Comments

Well, what do I say about this old girl? The first impression is of spaciousness, light and an ambiance of relaxed comfort. I visited on a dank and drizzly day, and the wheelhouse area with the galley and dining space were bright and warm, and I have to say she has a comfortable, easy feel about her.

She dates from 1945, larch on oak, and she has recently been lifted and completely re-caulked the proper way, using oakum and black tar, followed by a primer and then antifouling. She looks very smart in her red paint with her clean grey decks and polished brass.

Down below, again the atmosphere is homely and friendly - I bet she is really snug in winter with the heating going and the wood burner blazing. Two decent cabins with double beds, and a roomy heads with separate shower.

The engine room is the size of Bournemouth, it doubles as a sort of shed and storage area, but the Foden FD6 is in full working order – indeed she went to sea quite recently when she went round to Gosport to have her caulking done.

Very comfortable, private and not a lot of money for your new home! If you get bored with the view you can just go somewhere else!

Ring me at Boatshed Port Solent on 07885 521960 and we’ll go along and see her
