The owner of this vessel has created a lovely living space in this motor yacht. You will see from the photographs how he has skilfully turned the aft-cabin into a really comfortable and modern saloon. The settees can be used as berths too if you wish. The galley is well designed and equipped. There is lots of stowage space on board too. I particularly like the separate heads and shower. The carpet in the mid-ships saloon and wheelhouse could do with changing but this is the last bit to do and you will have a fine boat to live on board. This vessel has an Eberspacher Hydronic diesel water heater which is connected to the water system of the vessel, and feeds the radiators positioned around the vessel via a Vetus pressurized water pump system.

This wooden motor yacht has been the subject of extensive refurbishment and there is a photographic diary of events. The owner has been really creative and made this boat a very fine one indeed. I love the aft-cabin fit out. The owner has gone to great extents to build in a leak proof finish to his design. This vessel would be ideal for a couple who wish to go on long trips and or to live aboard. Have a look at the pictures and video. The annual mooring fees are £2243.80 with the full annual discounts applied.
