Broker's Comments

We are pleased to present this project steel craft, by Methley Bridge. She was originally supplied by them and has returned to them for re-fit.

She's been recently surveyed (July) and fully anti-fouled and repainted.

Her interior is now ready for fit out to a buyers' spec.
Three large cabins provide plenty of scope, as well as a large wheelhouse. The centre cabin is already plumbed to accommodate a bathroom and/or kitchen.

Full diesel-fired central heating is fitted, supplying 6 radiators, as are electrics to all rooms and gas to the kitchen area. Saniflo macerator toilet system.

She has a new Boat Safety and could be fitted to the new Owner's spec, by the yard, as well as transported (by sea, as she has a Class 1 certificate) - costs to be determined.

I can highly recommend taking a look at the potential this vessel offers, at a great price!

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
