Broker's Comments

The vessel plied the waters of the River Dart until 2006 as a tourist ferry. In 2006 she arrived in Gibraltar and delighted tens of thousands of tourists with her dolphin viewing excursions.

Sadly her life in Gibraltar is coming to an end because her wooden hull does not meet new more stringent maritime safety regulations. That said she is in perfect seaworthy condition and has been plying her trade until last week with hundreds of passengers.

This vessel could be converted Ito a very large and comfortable private yacht or be exported to a jurisdiction with a more lenient safety regime. Her extremely attractive price reflects the vendors desire to move on.
