The vessel's lower helm position is forward, to port whilst opposite is a chart table.

This vessel has been the subject of considerable renovation and refurbishment. We understand the owner has spent some £20,000 over the last 3 years and that she is only now for sale due to a change in plans. She has full British Registration (registered tonnage 16.36 tons). She has recently been repainted/re-varnished (this latter is still being completed), and had her antifouling renewed. She has also had new stainless steel and phosphor-bronze seacocks fitted, and has a new winter cover with transparent windows, which keeps the interior of the boat light. A survey report is available for serious enquirers. She is a very comfortable and handsome vessel, ideal for coastal or inland cruising and/or as a live aboard.
