Broker's Comments

This is a classic Mitchell 28 Sea Warrior with an intriguing history in the Ministry of Defense where she performed in various roles. She received a full refit in 2003 and was finally retired from Government service in 2009. Detailed documentation on the refit has been maintained and is available. Her Ford Sabre engine and semi-displacement hull deliver a cruising speed of about ten knots. Her current owner has purchased another smaller boat that fits his particular requirement a little better and she is ready for a new home.
