Broker's Comments

This is a fine looking Humber 40 motor boat, with a really imposing presence. She's designed for comfort afloat for weekends, or much longer stays on board - and this boat has covered some amazing trips - namely through the French canals to the Mediterranean!

Unfortunately the sun has taken its toll on the painted superstructure but her interior is an absolute delight - stacks of space, stowage a very few compromises - I think you should be really comfortable here!

With three very large cabins, two heads and a dedicated shower compartment, plus a large galley and a high deck saloon giving commanding views over the marina, she seems really well set up for comfort afloat.

Outside, lots of space awaits - a high aft deck ,with lots of room and great views plus a large, uncluttered foredeck and - of course - an amazing fly bridge, from which you can enjoy open air boating and have a great view whilst coming alongside.

Her current owners took her to the Mediterranean via the French canals, which they deem her suitable for, with the radar arch lowered and the fly bridge screen removed.

If you're after great accommodation afloat, that could really take you places in comfort and style, for a great price, I'd recommend an early look at this lovely boat.
