Broker's Comments

MV Hubberston will be very familiar to any Milford Haven sailor. She has been a stalwart of the Port Authority Pilots for the past 22 years. Just come out of survey and with a comprehensive bill of health including hull ultrasound and repaint she is a full functioning pilot launch that might make a useful dive boat, research vessel or, for the mildly eccentric amongst us, a liveaboard!
