Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract. Preliminary details awaiting owners consent.
This solid lady has been much loved by her present owners who are motivated to sell due to health reasons.
You approach her fantastic main cabin (44ft by 14ft approx) via the wheelhouse. She is delightfully bright and airy, whilst the wood panelling adds a feeling of luxury and warmth. The bespoke bar makes a get together great fun to host. The accommodation has been planned for her present owner's needs. However additional sleeping accommodation could be provided by re-defining use of the existing living space.
Her present owners are prepared to sell her fully furnished too. So if you like the idea of a comfortable chilled out life then this lady is not to be missed.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
