Broker's Comments

A very versatile and rugged boat ideal for coastal fishing or as a work/rescue boat.
She would also make an ideal charter boat for fishing or taking tourist sightseeing the seal colony at Scroby sands.
Powered by a Perkins 4236 diesel engine giving 80hp which is equally at home on inland waterways.
As you can see from the photo's she has a huge open deck space and a sheltered wheelhouse which is very well instrumented with GPS, Radar, depth log, VHF DSC radio etc.
