Broker's Comments

This boat is a well maintained version of these robust and well known vessels. Commonly used for work, this one was initially owned by the Royal Navy, but throughout its life has moved towards more commercial and leisure use. It is currently Marine and Coastguard Agency Category 2 coded, which expires June 2019. This is therefore a versatile craft, with numerous avenues of potential and would be suitable for the sea, inland waterways, canals and even as a small liveaboard.

The boat is currently owned by an experienced, commercial skipper and marine engineer, who has carried out an extensive refurbishment, between August 2017 and July 2018. This refit has included conversion of the open, centre cockpit, to a covered cockpit, which can now be used with the sides open, canvas covered with translucent panels or fully enclosed. The boat is also complete with an extensive Inventory of navigation and safety equipment, much of it recent.

This boat would be suitable for anybody looking for a versatile, well maintained, reliable and rugged power cruiser that has a classic look and pedigree.
