The engine is actually easy to start - when you have the knack. I'll show you how
Mooring available for £276 a month but discounts available for quarterly or yearly payment, in a beautiful marina with a water and electricity serviced pontoon and friendly neighbours. There's even a local shop, pub and regular social meetings. Laundry, shower, toilet facilities, WIFI, little library, boules courts, entertainment evenings, newspaper delivery to your boat, elsan treatment, recycling, diesel and pump out for sale plus loads more, they're very helpful people

The interior is dated and could do with updating although it's habitable if you wanted to move on immediately
The living room floor was previously damp (from a leak now fixed) so will need a portion of wood removing and replacing

A lick of paint inside and out, maybe a bit of wood work and you could have yourself an amazing vintage engine boat
The hull is listed as 1973, the last survey was 4 years ago (kept by 2x previous owner) showed at least 6mm steel under the water line - I believe them and see the video, the steel shows no pitting or marking, the boat has barely moved in 10 years and it shows

Everything you see in the videos comes with the boat, equipment, life jackets, gas bottles, etc etc

This is an amazing boat and could be something special
