Broker's Comments

A really sturdy and well built boat. Perfect for live aboard and more casual cruising, I certainly wouldn't be worried about taking a vessel of this size on long legs.

She has some great original features which I have fallen in love with a bit if I'm honest. The Nav lights are beautiful as are the chunky metal hinges and hand rails, and the windows in the saloon create a really nice light and open space. A very cool boat.

She is currently a comfortable live aboard with all the mod cons you would expect in a modern house. She has been used for diving in the past and there is an old dive compressor in the engine room which I would either put in a museum or on display as it is a really interesting piece.

I did notice the deck could do with a scrubbing and some parts of the hull could do with cleaning, there is also a side panel that is due to be repaired before sale.

The current owner is selling to move ashore, and the mooring is available.
