Broker's Comments

Get yourself a piece of real history!

This historic converted Steam Tug is on the National Historic Ships Register and was the group leader in the historic tugboats section in the 2012 Queens Diamond Jubilee pageant on the Thames.

Perhaps more importantly, this classic Tugboat saw service in the First World War at Scapa Flow with the Royal Navy, was then sold and used as a tugboat. She is now owned and restored by her current owner who bought her 25 years ago.

This is a fascinating boat and is like a tardis inside. She is looking for the right owner to make her their own and there is so much scope to make the accomodation unique and interesting.

The engine in itself is enough to captivate the enthusiast and would be more than up to any job asked of it. Housed within its own well fitted workshop, it's a mechanics dream retreat!

This is a fantastic opportunity to own an unusual and historic vessel which is perfectly liveable in its present condition but could become something spectacular with vision.
