A Classic styled steel motor yacht, built as a mussel cutter in 1959. Professionally converted from a commercial fishing cutter into a practical, contemporary motor cruiser, she offers accommodation for up to six persons. A cruising home/ pleasure craft, she could be used for commercial survey or charter work.
She has the capabilities to go practically anywhere and can be run self sufficiently off grid. Modifications and the re workings of her domestic arrangements were completed, 2018.
She has spent the last couple of seasons cruising inland water ways of Holland. Last out of water whilst over there for an insurance survey, May 2020, report available, surveyor's recommendations were attended too.
She returned to UK waters. 2019 and is kept "in commission", repainted, re-anti-fouled, new anodes. "Ready to go".
This vessel is in remarkable condition having been stripped inside and out with no expense spared, she has had over £300,000 spent on her over the last 10 years and now represents one of the best "small ship" conversions we have seen. The broker and the boatyard have been involved with her last two owners, and overseen the project, throughout the extensive renovations and conversion, all invoices for the most recent works are available to prove VAT has been paid.
There is also a large folder to cover the extensive works carried out in Holland pre 2017.
This vessel is a purposeful workboat conversion with all the construction and systems built to commercial specification and design.
Mooring available subject to negotiation.
