Broker's Comments

Totally restored by her current owner who has spent in excess of 2,500 hours bringing this boat to an excellent standard.
The rebuild was from the keel up and there is photographic evidence of all the work that has been done.
Just a short list of work done includes, new ribs, planking, new coach roof, rewire, complete gas system, diesel fired heating, floors, batteries, American cherry woodwork, remote control LED Lighting, Props re balanced and so on.
She is on the historic ships register as she was commandeered by the Royal Navy between 1940 and 1945.
She was used recently to film an episode of "Great Canal Journeys with Timothy West and Prunella Scales.
She is stored in a wet shed and the mooring here is paid until the end of November.
The high gloss clear and paint finishes are 2 pack paint and laquer.
This is a truly stunning boat and receives admiring looks and comments whenever she sails.
She really must be seen to appreciate the high standard of workmanship not only when first built and also during her refurbishment.
The owner has said he would consider a Nimbus cruiser in p/x
