The Mitchell 31 formally the Newhaven Sea Angler 31 became known as a Mitchell synonymous with the builders R.Mitchell & Son, manufactured Mitchell's between 1972 - 1982. The Mitchell 31 provides a basic sea-boat with the capability of maintaining stability in all weathers and offers a wide use from private angling and cruising through to undertaking commercial operation. 'Le Valseur' is an early MK1 example with a professionally modified wheelhouse which has increased the internal volume. 'Le Valseur' has benefitted from several improvements following a re-fit in 2006 which included; new topside paint, extension of wheelhouse, S/S keel band, new rubber fendering and a replacement larger reconditioned IVECO 220HP engine. A robust vessel ideal for angling or motor cruising in a variety of weather and sea conditions.
