This boat was designed by a marine architect as a sea and river adventure boat with a rising bow and canoe stern, a vee hull and a 12 metre ballasted keel. It's been round half the English coast and the entire west coast of France, Belgium, Holland and all the big rivers and canals in western Europe. An excellent boat in rough sea it does what it was built for, with a centre boat engine room, fuel tanks centre boat under gunwales port and starboard, water tanks fore and aft under gunwales both sides, tanks hold 2000 litre of fuel and 2000 litre water, both fuel and water tanks are interconnected so the trim always remains the same making a perfectly balanced boat. It was lifted out of water last year hull pressure washed and repainted also the hull was surveyed, the report is available to view. It was built by Liverpool boats overseen by Graham & Woolnough consultant naval architects their report is available to view.
Will ship back to England if required.
