Broker's Comments

A true classic in every sense. Built in 1937 she retains almost all her oringinal features. She has had modern updates in respect of a new engine,gearbox and drive along with a very efficient calorifier.
She has also had new stainless fuel, water and holding tanks. She was proffesionally re-upholstered in 2008 and benefits from an electric toilet. The pictures show her as she is having gone through the worst of the winter and as a result does need some paint and varnish. But this is a solid boat oozing with character and amazing potential and with a little tlc she will be stunning.
