Broker's Comments

This beautiful old motor cruiser may be from another era but still catches the eye. Classic lines, sturdy structure and volumes of space, there is plenty to like.

Powered by twin 120hp Thornycroft diesel engines, giving a sensible powerbase and a cruising speed of 15 knots. I have not seen the engines start or run but we have it on good authority they were started and run up in Nov 2021 without any issues. The engines where both fully serviced in 2019 prior to the boat being hauled out and dry stored.

The boat has been out of the water since 2019 and needs some attention. As the pictures show, parts of the boat have been dismantled with thoughts of restoration/upgrades. Circumstance has changes and the project remains incomplete. Most of the fixings/fastenings/cabinetry remain onboard and could be, with relative easy put back together. The interior has a light airy and dry feel with no obvious signs of damp.

With the right skillset there is a great opportunity to breath life back in to this lovely old boat so she can sedately cruise the coastlines or inland waterways as she once did.
