Broker's Comments

** Stop press ** Currently undergoing complete upper deck rub down, 3-4 coats of varnish and complete upper deck paint and anti-slip!

Boats like these just don't come along very often! This is one of the most beautiful boats I've ever seen...

Now out of a 3 year refit, she looks fantastic, feels fantastic and is very, very special - you can feel this, the minute you step on board.

Reportedly used as a barrage balloon tether during world war 2, this lovely boat has been identified as meriting inclusion in the National Register of Historic Vessels of the United Kingdom.
