A really sturdy and well built boat. Perfect for live aboard or long distance cruising. You certainly wouldn't be worried about taking a vessel of this size on long legs, she has real ocean crossing capability.
She has some great original features. The Nav lights are beautiful as are the chunky metal hinges and hand rails, and the windows in the saloon create a really nice light and open space. A very cool boat.
She has been used as a comfortable live aboard for the last three years, with all the mod cons you would expect in a modern house- diesel fired radiator central heating and hot water, washing machine and dishwasher and fully equipped galley.
There are two double en-suite cabins with options to sleep two in the convertible dinette area, and two in the saloon.
All of that said, she is also capable and fully equipped for ocean voyages with two reliable DAF Diesel Engines she will cruise comfortably at around 8 - 10 knots, and with 550 gallons fuel capacity long voyages could be undertaken.
She is a fifty year old boat so she is not in showroom condition. There are a few cosmetic issues with the boat, currently being rectified, but there is plenty of scope for a dedicated new owner to live aboard and bring her up to a really nice standard.
She is currently on the hard at Portishead, where berths are available (approximately £500 a month) and viewings are welcomed....Read full description
