This classic motor launch has been restored and maintained by her current owner, a professional boatbuilder, for the last 16 years, and a photographic record of her restoration is available for viewing (not included in sale). Her current owner may be able to obtain a Boat Safety Certificate on behalf of the new owner, and may also be willing to complete any other works required by the new owner, subject to the selling price. This beautiful launch has been restored to a high standard, and will be easy to maintain in the future due to her sikaflexed seams and her epoxied topsides. She has been lying undercover at her owners home for the last 3 years, having been in regular use previous to this. Her owner has continued to maintain her both structurally and mechanically during her time out of the water, and states that her engine is always easy to start and runs well. She would be a fantastic family dayboat, and will be much admired where ever she goes.
