Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Steven of Boatshed Broker. Register or log in to see 37 more photos of this boat. Yet another boat photographed on a damp, gloomy day but the quality of this MFV conversion shone through. Vast sums and months of traditional ship wrighting skills have been poured into this superb conversion. She benefits from new rigging, both standing and running, a new wardrobe of sails, a re-built engine and new interior upholstery. Originally built on the Isle of Skye, she spent many years shrimping in the North Atlantic. She is a very sturdy vessel and if you are looking for a MFV conversion for leisure or live-board, look no further. Start (and end) your search here. If you are considering doing a conversion yourself - don't. The figures just don't add up when the finished product is available at this price. Details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price will be considered.
