When I first looked at this boat I saw a very up-together workboat. She has lots of safety equipment aboard but everything stowed correctly and the decks still clear for working. She has all the lovely features of a 1970's Nelson, sleek lines, the teak trim well varnished and the recently painted hull making her look like she really has been cared for.
When you go below you get a surprise as she has been fitted out by her current owner for cruising and is light and comfortable and unexpectedly well equipped. Al the safety gear is still there but you feel much more like you are aboard a motor cruiser rather than a workboat.
And there are many more things to recommend her - access to the engines is superb and whilst I was aboard they were started cold and ran quietly and extremely cleanly.
She had a full survey undertaken in April 2015 and could be very easily re-coded and put back into service or for those cruisers or liveaboards who want to go a bit further and feel they are always going to get home again she has the style and comfort to make it a pleasure
