Owners comments:

This Live Aboard Motor yacht is seriously for sale. I would certainly assist any new owner with first hand knowledge that I have retained over the past twenty or so years that I have owned her.

The outstanding work is mainly cosmetic and the restoration is not so expensive as to be beyond the average working persons pocket and the work needed is ether  to employ a first class shipwright who is experienced at working on wooden boats "Carvel Types" or an enthusiastic younger owner with time and skills to undertake this project, as several planks need replacing and the side decks and deck beams also need some work in places such as doubling up over joints after scarfing in new pieces . 

This is most probably at a 10% repair in total of the whole vessel to bring her back into first class sailing/cruising order .

With the final choices of the internal decor, upholstery etc left to the new owner, other work required will be the completion of electrical fittings , Plumbing connections, for Hot, Cold, and waste water, and salt water flushing and deck wash systems.

The vessel will need an exterior repaint with the bootopping and antifouling being completed. (Shipwrights are available who know the boat if required to complete the outstanding works) All materials and equipment as per specification are included in the sale.

Surveyor’s valuation upon completion for this A J Mylne designed gentleman’s classic motor yacht: £128,000.

British registered for secure transfer of title.
