Broker's Comments

This converted MFV has been extensively rebuilt the hull was stripped back inside and out and re-painted and then insulated. The decks are completely new as is the wheelhouse most of this work was completed in 2008. As part of this process the decks have been raised to increase headroom and space below deck. The interior is fitted out to a high standard throughout.
From the spotless Gardiner engine upward she is clearly in very good shape, an ideal liveaboard as well as being a capable sea going vessel.
The owner will consider part exchange.

These boat details are subject to contract.
