    Remarks :
    "Rhouma" is a Carvel constructed Larch on Oak motor vessel. She was built in 1971 by MacCaughy of Wick and up until recently was used as a small ferry, sight seeing craft in Lochaber. She was fully coded up until 2014 and could be coded again quite easily for a similar purpose or as a angling charter craft.
    The wheelhouse, with its raised helm position allows great visibility and is large enough to store all the life jackets, thermal protection suits, deck awnings and equipment required to offer safe passage to fare paying customers.
    The cockpit is deep, safe and has ample seating for passengers. These could easily be removed should a different application be found.
    Structurally and mechanically sound she is in good shape and ready to be put to immediate use.

    Accommodation :
    There is no accommodation on this boat. However due to the size of the wheelhouse this could easily incorporate a bunk and a small galley if required. Her main purpose has been day trip and passenger transfer so any room has been given over to the storage of personal life jackets and safety equipment required for coding. There is a marine toilet forward of helm.
