Broker's Comments

An vessel with a distinguished history. Originally built for the North Sea Herring fleet and that demands a strong and capable hull. This boat has a certificate from the "Historic Ships Register". The current owner had spent 3 years in a Lowestoft Marina rebuilding this boat at a cost of 137k!!! And reputedly this vessel was the property of no less than the the famous Buster Crabb, and there is ample provenance.
So now, this little ship is ready for her next adventure, she has great character and a cosy interior and would make a perfect extended cruising home.
