This tug has been beautifully converted into what is now a stylish liveaboard, as well as a displacement power boat, in full commission. This boat is therefore the perfect combination of smart accommodation afloat, with the ability to take to the seas in safety and comfort.
Originally built in 1958, by Appledone in Devon, the current owner purchased the hull in 2012, commissioning a professional refit, including a rebuild of the hull and addition of the upper helm and accommodation area and topsides, in 12mm steel. The boat was surveyed in August 2018 and has since had all recommended work completed. This survey is available and demonstrates the owner’s attention to detail completing this refit.
The accommodation is set over two floors, including two cabins, heads and saloons and a separate engine room and workshop area. There is a good deal of storage space and potential to convert a cabin currently used as a study into an additional double berth. The external and interior finish is stylish and new and the overall design has been carefully considered.
This boat has an incredible amount of potential, from an elegant floating home or holiday getaway, to a stylish platform for travel and potential commercial activities.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
