Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

Freeman 26 GRP river cruiser powered by two Perkins 4107 diesel engines.
Externally she is a good looking boat in original gel coat. The canopy is perfectly serviceable.
She is being offered at a very keen price due to the interior and cockpit woodwork needing a prep and varnish. The woodwork is dry and solid but the varnish seems to have blistered causing a dull appearance and "matt" finish.
No apparent signs of water ingress despite the recent heavy rain.
The engines start well and with no smoke other than for a few seconds on a first cold start up.
Her BSC runs until My 2023
The price is certainly 50% below normal asking prices so she is priced as a "project" to take the varnish on the woodwork in to account.
