Broker's Comments

Here we have a very flexible 19.75m Steel survey boat built in 1976. She was built in Poland and has been a pilot boat and a survey vessel.

She has a large wheelhouse containing a very comprehensive control and helm suite, work areas and storage, a microwave and with direct access to the engine room, aft cabin area and aft deck. The twin Kent screens provide good visibility in bad weather and she has roof lights so aid viewing upwards.

She has new safety systems fitted to include 2 x 8 man deck mounted self deploying life rafts, new EPIRB and flares and more.

The aft cabin has 4 bunk berths, a small galley with its own heads and shower and heating. There is a large aft deck area with access down to the aft storage and steering room which gives great access to the steering gear and offers a lot of storage or workshop space.

Moving forward is the separate forward accommodation with 4 bunks, heads, shower and heating. The foredeck has access down to the focsle which is a good size but also has a small moon pool for survey instrument deployment and this also has a deck Derek that feeds through to the same area to deploy or retrieve the test kit from the deck level. There is a separate Derek at the rear on the aft deck area.

The machine space is very well laid out and houses the main engine which is a 420HP WOLA v12 diesel which is apparently very economical. There are also twin 18kva 415V diesel generators flanking the main motor plus a compressed air system and a fire fighting pumping system. There is even a well equipped workshop area in the machine space. She is full of fuel at 6T which is about 6500L.

Sailing trials are welcomed by the vendor once a deal is agreed and a deposit paid. The boat was drydocked last last year and re blacked and new anodes fitted and hull plate thickness checked. She has been certified for 60miles from safe haven use in her life and if to be used commercially this will need to be renewed. SCMS certification can be organised by the vendor at an additional cost of £60k if required. If she is to be used privately she would have great potential as a go anywhere vessel that would also convert into a spacious, capable and characterful home from which to see the world.

If you are looking for a commercial or survey vessel or even the chance to head to to sea for a new life afloat this boat has a huge amount to offer. The vendor will deliver the boat by sea at a cost to be agreed, which gives great confidence in the vessel.
