Broker's Comments

Since her MOD days, this harbour launch has had a mechanical, electrical and hull refit. As her photographs will show, she has been kept in keeping with her original spec. Her engine was rebuilt in the 1998 refit, and electrics refitted in 1999. Legend plates indicate dates of work done, and names of those involved. Her makeover has been a labour of love and has been tastefully done.

Her external paintwork is excellent. Her internal decor is minimalist, but pristine. There is some beautiful woodwork - some new, some old. Flooring is excellent, but unfortunately due to excess rain on day of listing, not shown to it's best effect - there is hardly a mark on it.

From 2003 to 2008 this vessel was stored under cover, when her internal layout was improved to incorporate sleeping arrangements, and the addition of heads.

The engine room is impressive and well kept. She has a unique and exciting feel to her. She offers an exciting drive, due to her strength.

Owner parting with her due to lack of continued use, and is selling regretfully. Many tales to be told of this valiant vessel.
