Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Allegedly this partially restored , but complete inventory vessel is an ex Bob Spalding vessel. Bob needs no introduction , as the Formula 1 world champion
his career in the eighties particularly embraced every powerboating challenge and full details of his achievements can be found at
Local to Suffolk, this amazing Barn Find has been meticulously sourced . Due to unforeseen circumstances she has been laid up for some years but this would make a great project for someone and you would have a very special boat, with what one can imagine a very fast boat that would be a headturner wherever she was seen , particularly finished in period advertising. Her provenance is hearsay but everything points to it being legitimate. This is unique and for a price that is not a reflection of her true value but more of the desire of her owner to see her going to a purchaser who will bring this project to its final fruition, the renovation of a classic and uniquely associated craft.

This Speed Boat Approx. 9 metres has been personally photographed and viewed by Philip Berkeley of Boatshed Suffolk. Click here for contact details.
