Broker's Comments

Boatshed Plymouth are pleased to add this beautiful Steel Motor Cruiser to their listings.

Built in 1939, by Dutch ship builders for Mr Mitchell of England who owned her until 1988. Her two sister ships took part in Dunkirk Little Ships.

The current owners have re fitted the interior making her most suitable for a comfortable live aboard. The wheelhouse remains largely original, but has been made to look like new.
Plenty of deck space allows for a good outdoor lifestyle and the new paintwork will be good for the next few years.

Set up for a couple to live aboard in comfort, this versatile boat is good for cruising too. The current residential mooring is available through separate negotiation.

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