Broker's Comments

Many classic boat lovers know the reputation with which the boats manufactured by James Silver Ltd in Rosneath are held. Built out of the highest quality materials, teak on oak, this example has been with the current owner for over ten years and has been a labour of love. The current owner has over the years done a substantial amount of work to get the boat into the current excellent condition.Replacing the ballast keel, hull below waterline and decks re-caulked, new fuel and water tanks and the water and fuel system replaced, new rudder tube and bearings - engines hauled out and serviced and tested - gearboxes re-built. The inside has now been completed and she is looking fantastic. See "more photos" to view 31 internal and external photos of this vessel.
