Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

The DVO variant being the planing hull with outdrive, of the legendary boats with a rope, the Romany 21s. Designed by Graham Farish The Romany was built primarily as a commercial fishing boat , but its sea kindly manners ensured it had a great leisure use following. Many hundreds were built for commercial customers including Trinity House and Government departments and exported worldwide. So, while she may look a little forlorn in places and needing her electrics rewired and of course the trademark rope to be renewed , she is nonetheless a great example, of this classic workboat. The boat that thinks it is a tug! If you know your boats then you will see through the superficial works and take this opportunity to grab a fishing boat with great class and history for a very reasonable sum. This boat has been priced to sell so she is going to go fast to someone seeking a sturdy reliable boat and she is ready to tow away on a purpose built trailer.

This Romany 21 has been personally photographed and viewed by Philip Berkeley of Boatshed Suffolk. Click here for contact details.
