Broker's Comments

From the heyday of motor yachts, built by James A. Silver Ltd of Rosneath, this Silver has indeed seen better days. Her current owner has spent a considerable amount of time and money gradually improving her condition. But he would be the first to admit she still requires considerable work. The hull needs attention and this is not a job for the enthusiastic amateur!!
