Broker's Comments

Where does one start!! In the life of a Yacht Broker we see the full spectrum of thing that float then along comes something completely different. There are only three commercially operating Steam driven Paddle steamers in the UK and this one is for sale. A unique opportunity for someone looking for a business or a very individual private yacht. Fully functioning with full certification she is ready to go.
You need to view her to appreciate in full the charm and potential of this truly unique vessel. Don't delay!!
