Beautiful 53' customised traditional wooden motor cruiser.
She was originally built in 1939 as a Thames Survey vessel, thereafter she was extensively rebuilt by the current owner in 1974 since then she has been in the same family, she is very well maintained to a high standard.
Unique opportunity to own this handsome craft powered by Twin Gardner 6LX engines that have been well maintained. She would make an excellent live board as she has plenty of internal space spread over 6 cabins with potential for charter work, also note that both masts are not through deck and therefore can be lowered.
Due to change in circumstances the price has been substantially reduced and the owner is open to offers as they are keen to see the boat moved onto another passionate owner.
This beautiful vessel has 7 permanent sleeping quarters but can sleep 12 comfortably, she has cruised to Norway 20 times demonstrating her excellent sea keeping properties.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
