Broker's Comments

Boatshed Wales are pleased to offer for sale this exceptionally well made, characterful, wooden motor sailer.

The Spray Watson design encompasses an incredibly tough layup, with large bright central helm/saloon, spacious aft cabin with roomy double berth. Second double, galley and heads are found fore of the saloon.

The boat is currently undergoing a major refit- many details listed within the advert. Approximately 80 percent complete, the refit is extensive and will remain ongoing until the boat sells.

The boat is seaworthy as is, mechanically sound and able to be used. The fore cabin requires completion although the boat has a fully functional galley, aft berth a working engine and fully functional navigational suite.

A characterful, well built boat, benefiting from many new upgrades and improvements

Please feel free to get in touch for further details.

These boat details are subject to contract.
