Broker's Comments

Here is a great old lady that needs lots of attention. Some work has already been done but there is plenty of scope to add your own handiwork! In the meantime she could be used as a live aboard before setting sail for an adventure on the high seas. Originally an MFV, she was converted in 1987 and has a full wardrobe of canvas sails. The owner is unable to give her the attention she needs, so is keen to find her a new lover!
