Broker's Comments

Ship shape and Bristol Fashion is how I would describe this much loved boat, a credit to her Owner since new.
She has had a life of busy summers, having had a cat C licence, 20 miles from safe haven, 10 passengers plus 2 crew. (not transferable). Mainly used for diving and sea angling around Lundy Island.
She has also carried several T.V. crews and presenters in pursuit of marine life filming.
Proven sea boat, built to massive specification. and very pretty.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
