Broker's Comments

This immaculately kept & solidly built weekend motor cruiser has been lovingly restored by its present owner. With an impressive attention to detail, he has invested generously on improvements including new gelcoat on the hull, copper coating below the water line & a GRP & mahogany finish on deck.

Converted from a former passenger liner rescue boat, this vessel is solidly built, seaworthy and has a traditional feel though out.

The pilot house offers good protection from the weather and the accommodation appears clean & tidy with new upholstery throughout.

Only selling due to retirement, this is very much a reluctant sale.

Owner has proof of VAT paid status & original Certificate of British Registry
