Broker's Comments


This is a truly unique boat, as featured in the August 2000 edition of Motorboat Monthly. She is a modified Bullet, designed by her current owner and professionally built, and I have to say he seems to have thought of everything. She has a powerful main engine, which means that she can cruise at 10 to 15 knots and reach 17 knots, but the two wing engines allow her to cruise at 5 to 6 knots. What this means is that she is equally at home on the open sea as on inland waters - so she would be ideal for someone wanting to shoot across the channel and then through the continental canal system. This configuration also means that she will "turn on a sixpence" - there's more as the modified stern minimises stern drag at low speeds.The helm provides excellent visability, but is not too high that the air draft is a problem, the saloon, galley, forward and aft cabins are all a good size and there are two on-suite heads. In short if you are looking for a extremely well thought-out boat, for inland, coastal and sea cruising or liveaboard, I would strongly recommend a viewing.

Price reduced to £49,995 and the vendor is receptive to part-exchange offers to a smaller motor/sail craft.
