Broker's Comments

Arvor190 powered by a 75 hp VW Marine 5cyl diesel engine.
Presented in very good condition all round.
She has only ever been used in freshwater is taken out of the water every year October-April.
She has a sliding door to the forward cabin/helm area offering 2 berths, moulded sink unit and recess for toilet. storage under sink unit and port berth. There are twin folding helm seats and stainless foot rest.
There are 2 folding bench seats either side of the cockpit area.
This boat is an excellent boat for sea fishing, cruising, weekender and a superb all-rounder.
The hydraulic steering means she can be steered from either the helm or cockpit by simply turning a valve located in a locker under the cockpit floor and using the tiller supplied.
She has a trolling valve on the gearbox
All manuals and service history are present.
It is hard to fault this boat and it really did impress me just how well cared for she has been. She has never been used in salt water and she has only done 895 hours since new.
The cabin, bilges and engine are spotless to the point the upholstery in the cabin still has the original plastic covers. She was taken out of the water in the Spring of 2022 until April 2023 and out again in October 2023 and she will be relaunched on April the 6th 2024.
Antifouled 01.04.2024
