The lines on this wooden vessel are very pleasing. I am waiting to get more detailed information regarding construction.


The accommodation is in need of fitting out. Currently as you will see from the photographs the work has stopped. If she was my vessel I would fit a galley on the starboard side of the galley steps. a heads to port and then have a large saloon area which could also provide 2/3 berths. Going forward you would be able to provide a twin/double berth in this cabin.
There is a large space under the wheelhouse too for storage.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This wooden boat has fine lines and was built in 1959, and we believe she is an ex pilot boat. This wooden motor cruiser is fitted with twin diesel engines which were rebuilt in 2012 and serviced in 2013.

This really is a blank-canvass as she is in need of some quite substantial refurbishment, however in the right hands she could potentially make a fantastic ‘live aboard’ opportunity. If you think that this boat could fulfill your requirements then I would advise, though advertised for £12,995 the owner is keen to sell and would consider any reasonable offer. Part exchange for a smaller boat would be considered.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
