Inchcape - 45 Motor Sailor

The Inchcape design was inspired by Scottish fishing boats and built as strong, powerful seaworthy vessels with all the comforts of a pleasure yacht, this created a very popular design with spacious and comfortable living accommodation, bags of character and superior strength and sea keeping.

This Inchcape 45 motor sailor has just undergone a major refit in her current ownership and is in exceptional condition throughout, mechanically, structurally and visually. Previously she cruised  the Mediterranean, Spain and Portugal and she has just returned from the west coast of Scotland, A perfect vessel for gentle adventures and live-aboard exploring with 'little ship' features and characteristics. 
She could be a wonderful alternative to the Nordhavn or Nordic Tug you might be looking at..............lots more boat for much less money.

This is a very special vessel – Call our office for more details.
