Broker's Comments

This ex admiralty harbour launch is an ideal liveaboard. There are areas that could still do with modernising but as a whole you could jump aboard today and motor her to a new mooring and have all the facilities you needed. May 2008 she was lifted ashore, antifouled and had new anodes and a prop fitted. Survey carried out at the same time.
