Broker's Comments

Currently licensed to MCA Category V and Category VI as a working passenger ferry, this vessel is ready to commence commercial work in the UK or overseas. She has been well maintained by her owners and recently underwent considerable refurbishment. including the hull, deck and wheelhouse. A great opportunity for a business start-up vessel at a fraction of the cost of a new commercial ferry. Her existing licences allow for 100 passengers + 3 crew or 63 passengers + 2 crew - one mile from shore and 10 miles from port.
