Broker's Comments

This Converted French Trawler with transferable residential mooring makes an excellent liveaboard with close proximity to Falmouth/Penryn. This boat has alot of charm and character with its piratical gaff cutter rig, tan sails, bowsprit and cosy interior. There is also a large workshop area aft which could be converted to an additional day saloon.

New bulwark planking, galley and interior wood features in 2008. The keel is protected by a metal shoe.

An affordable home afloat in Falmouth which commands a fantastic spot on the River Fal with superb views of unspoilt rural farmland. If you fancy embracing a new way of life this could be the boat for you.
