Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Step aboard this delightful Shetland 640. These boats were designed for river and coastal cruising and provide basic but comfortable accomodation for two people in 2 single berths in the cabin (which can be converted to a double), 2 smaller berths are provided in the cockpit. She has a sink, a cooker and galley workspace. She also has an enclosed heads compartment and she has a number of lockers and hanging space for clothes.
The large cockpit area is ideal for sunbathing or of course a spot of fishing, especiallly here on the Norfolk Broads.
She has 2 batteries, 1 for the engine and the second for lights etc. The cockpit cover is in new condition, and the boat is ready to cruise. The frugal Yamaha 4 stroke outboard is electric start as has covered low hours. She has a current river licence and a boat safety certificate valid untill 2013.
Equiped with a folding windscreen she will pass under the broads bridges including Potter Heigham.
To sumarise, a great starter boat, quality build by a famous builder offered in my opinion at a very fair price.
