ACCOMMODATION: 2/3 berths plus small galley and separate heads

ENGINE: Small Thetis diesel for use on inland waters. Her original Chris Craft V-8 engine is available by separate negotiation, but needs restoration.

DESCRIPTION: The boat has a large (approx. 10' x 8') self-draining cockpit, with helm seat to starboard and wicker chairs for day parties. Companionway steps lead down into the cabin where there is a single settee berth to starboard, opposite which is the heads and galley. The heads provides a toilet and hand basin, whilst the galley has a small cooker, worktop and storage. There are is a full-length V-berth in the bow. Headroom in the central part of the cabin is about 6'. Navigation equipment includes: Compass, clock and barometer, and navigation lights. She has folding windscreens, plus a folding wheelhouse and also a large, whole cockpit cover giving full headroom. She is fitted with a stainless steel pulpit rail, has grab handles on the cabin roof and hand rails all round the cockpit. She comes complete with all cushions, a fire extinguisher, tender, ropes, fenders, anchor and warp.

REMARKS: This boat was used for many years by her owners of 22 years as an express cruiser in the South of France. She is typical of the classic, smaller coastal express cruisers used in the United States and is ideal for weekend socialising, or for short cruises. She could be trailed by a large car if required. She is currently stored afloat, but under cover with her windscreen, pulpit and handrails removed for ease of access. She is a boat with huge potential if you are willing to restore her (work required believed to be mainly cosmetic). She appears overall to be in sound condition and should make heads turn wherever she goes.
