"Phoebe" has been my home for 22 years. Genuine change in life's circumstances forces QUICK SALE. A classic boat; very aesthetically pleasing "vintage" vessel and an ideal live aboard for one person or a close couple. Steel hull, composite cabin (wood with fibre glass sheath), BMC 1.5. The engine has been annually serviced (last service Jan 2019) and is solidly reliable. Last blacked Oct 2016, sacrificial anodes. The cabin is watertight with no leaks. Original 70's fit out featuring mahogany beams though out. Lovely rustic "cottagey" feel. Wood burner (Jotel), full size gas cooker (Hotpoint hug 52), gas water heater (Paloma), shower, porta poti, fixed double bed, engine room. Plenty of storage throughout. BSC Oct 2020.
