Broker's Comments

This Fairline Vixen would make an ideal starter boat, with comfortable accommodation for two for to get away from it all at weekends.
She benefits from a recent new canopy, engine service, outdrive works, bilge pump and engine blower. She also comes with a tonneau cover as well as the main canopy. The engine is the trusty Volvo Penta AQ130 petrol, which starts readily and runs smoothly.
The interior trim would benefit from an update, however the upholstery throughout is perfectly serviceable as-is.
All of the windows have been removed, refurbished and resealed by a reputable boatyard, and the owner has receipts totalling more than £1200 for work and updates to the boat recently.
This boat represents an ideal opportunity to spend some summer weekends on the river for an affordable price.
