Broker's Comments

Boatshed Dartmouth are pleased to offer for sale a splendid and much loved Class V passenger vessel. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a ferry that is currently licensed and coded. She is offered for sale with:
• New MCA Class V licence
• Heel test issued May 2011
• All life-preservers and safety equipment as detailed in the description
• Safety Management Code (in date) that would just require the company standing orders section updating for new owners

She has recently under-gone refurbishment works ashore. Running on a very economical Gardner engine at just 4 lt per hour and equipped ‘ready to go’ this is the perfect vessel for adding to an existing business fleet or indeed for anyone looking to start up a new operation. She is perfectly suited to short ferry trips or wildlife excursions on river, lake or estuary and is probably one of the nicest looking little ferries I have seen. The skippers tell me she is one of their favourite vessels to operate as she ‘does just what she is told’.
Viewings are strictly by prior appointment with your Boatshed Dartmouth broker Paul Singer and are available 6-days a week.
