Broker's Comments

Here is a project boat with loads of potential. The current owner had great plans but changes in circumstances have meant the boat has got to go.

The air-cooled Lister SR3 engine starts and runs well. The 12v system will need overhauling as well as servicing the heating and installing a 240V shore power system.

Internally, a blank canvas awaits and the option to choose your own layout and spec.

The boat has neither a recent survey or current BSS - hence the asking price. The owner is keen to sell and would be open to sensible offers.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
