Broker's Comments

I have never seen such a beautifully presented fishing boat! From the spotless bilge and engine bay to the galley and the deck - everything is clean and tidy. The design features a large open deck space with room for eight anglers, a comfortable wheelhouse with small galley and bench seat and a large for'ard storage area which could easily accommodate a Vee berth or sea toilet if required. The engine sparkles, the navigation equipment is of a good standard and the deck has been re-newed and re-sealed. It is also self-draining through two aft scuppers.
An ideal private fishing vessel or subject to approval she could provide mackerel charters.
