Broker's Comments

A unique opportunity to purchase an historical vessel and also a comfortable live-aboard or go anywhere cruiser. The current owners have lived on this vessel for many years, during which time they have made many improvements, alterations and additions. The engine room with its three engines, generator and other ancillary equipment is a fascinating place to be, and all said to be in good working order if you wish to move the vessel and take her away to a new mooring.
The galley and saloon area is very cosy with a lovely Rayburn stove as well as a gas cooker and oven. Accommodation for four people is provided in a large mid-ships cabin with two double berths.
Poor health forces the sale and the decks and wheelhouse could now do with a fresh coat of paint, but the hull is believed to be in a sound condition and a full marine survey can be undertaken quite easily close by.

To make an appointment to visit this vessel please call me on 01752 426106.
