Halcyon is a Birchwood 33 Classic, a popular cruiser; she has undergone many upgrades over the last few years including re upholstery, upper helm fitted, Corian worktops and flexi teak style decking. The Birchwood 33 is a very spacious boat, ideal for family and friends. One of Halcyon Twin Ford Lehman 6cyl Diesels is presently out of commission - the engine block needs replacing. We are hesitant to advertise her as a 'project' boat, even though there are a few items that need attention, but generally with the engine sorted and some TLC she would be an enjoyable boat.

Halcyon does need a new engine, although some of the Birchwood 33s were built with only one engine and if for river use, one could easily manage with one engine. With the exception of the engine the other items needing repair; heater, galley woodwork, Radar, etc. are fairly easy to rectify and having done so she would probably be worth over £20 000 and the seller will consider reasoble offers....Read full description
