Broker's Comments

This looks like a tidy example of a very popular day fishing boat.

She was bought from a professional fisherman by the current owner when he ran a marine engineering company. The vessel was thoroughly and completely refurbished and a builder's plate commemorates the year this was done.

Since then the Mitsubishi 18hp engine has only done about 30 hours a year and it started from cold immediately and ran sweetly.

In 2019 the owner had a heavy canvas cockpit cover made that makes the boat really weatherproof, and the cockpit really shows this. Now he wants to sell her and eventually move to sunnier climes.

The boat is supported on a dolly (included) which can be towed onto a car transporter to her future destination.

These boat details are subject to contract.
