Broker's Comments

On first impressions, this boat is incredibly striking and despite being built in the UK looks very much like an American sports fisher, with her long sharp pointed bow, large wheel house and extra large fishing platform at the rear.

The wheel house is spacious and offers a saloon area with seating for 6 people plus, at the front on the starboard side is the helm.

Compared to modern fast fishers with smaller fishing space, this boat could easily accommodate 6/7 people for fishing. There are plenty of rod holders and a large bait table at the rear.

The galley is well-equipped and includes a 2 burner gas hob, grill, oven, microwave, plenty of storage and a sink.

The forward V Berth cabin is airy, clean, and due to the size of the boat, surprisingly spacious.

All photos and videos were taken at the inspection including the engine start video. On arrival both engines were cold and each engine was then started independently; they started first time and purred along nicely pumping out a decent spurt of water either side of the stern.

In my opinion, this boat appears to be in good condition and would be well suited to someone looking for a weekender boat and/or a fishing boat that offers plenty of space for guests. Due to her size she could also be used as a charter boat (subject to being coded).
