Broker's Comments

If you are looking for an almost complete project with a sound hull, reconditioned engine and complete internal refit with just a few weeks worth of finishing off, contact Boatshed today!

With just a little work to bring her up to final spec, you can have a boat that shouts "home" very quickly.

A budget liveaboard, this boat is priced to attract the enthusiast who will appreciate the work already completed, but who wants to put the final icing on the cake to call it their own.

Currently on a mooring in a marina close to Hemel Hempstead, the mooring could be transferable by agreement with marina management.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
