Broker's Comments

If you'd like a slice of vintage motor boating, then she may be the one for you!

She seems tidy enough outside, with some areas for improvement, whilst down below is a joy, if you're into attaining the vintage feel - there are original features all over the place!

A large wheelhouse leads forward into a really nice sized saloon, with lots of room, seating and carpet seemingly up to your knees, whilst her aft companionway leads to a decent sized aft cabin.

If you fancy weekend motoring, or a little longer and you yearn the the yesteryear feeling, then we'd recommend a look at this motor cruiser.
