Honestly, this is likely to be the best example of an SR5.4 you’ll see. Incredibly seaworthy for it’s size and built to withstand the abuse of the Royal Navy! In full working order and ready to get you out on the sea this Summer.
Ideal for days out with the family, blasts on your own or fishing trips with your mates! Our kids have loved this boat and we have had some great days out. It’s only for sale as we’d ideally like something slightly bigger so we can venture further afield.
