Broker's Comments

For those who love traditional wooden construction, from Dixon & Son in Exmouth this is a 1960's classic launch that was rebuilt by Michael Atfield of Salcombe in 1999.

With new engines (main & wing) she was re-launched in 2000 and has been lightly used and well-maintained since. She is a versatile cruising launch with an enclosed wheelhouse and separate saloon that is ideal for our inclement weather. She has a large cockpit area and is a strong, reliable well-built boat that could have many uses. The second wing-engine is ideal for economical low-speed manoeuvres and fishing trips etc.
