Broker's Comments

An interesting and intriguing life boat from 1905. Reputed to be from HMS Challenger, but there is no proof. There are also two builders plates inside from different dates, which may be complete red-herrings - so I a bit of a mystery boat.

A finely shaped hull makes this boat ripe for re-conversion into a leisure cruiser. She could also be used as a live-aboard, but her internal height of 5'4" makes her a little restricted.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
