We have owned the boat for around 7 years and have many good memories. We have found less and less time to get out on it due to the family expanding and have now decided it doesn't fit into our life anymore and would rather see it being used in all its glory.2x Cummins 6BT Diesels on closed cooling water systemsTop and bottom deck re upholstered two years agoNew extended full height canopy, two years agoNew macerator last yearElectric flushing head, with holding tankWet room, although shower, sink etc are not connectedSome lower lights are connected, plenty of opportunity for personalising with regards to comforts (led lights etc)CD Radio, Dimmable speaker top and lower deckShip to shore radio2x 150 gallon diesel tanks6/7 Berth, Very roomy both up and downstairs. Very beamy downstairs.We fitted the diesels last year and had new props made to compensate for the lower rpm of the diesel engines. We used it for cruising last year and ticks over at 5 knots. This year we decided to have a play with winding up the diesel pumps to get the boat to plain. After a lot of trial and error we got the stern engine to rev up under load at the req rpm with the turbo on full boost, although havnt had the time to do the port as yet. Lack of time meant that when we did get up to the boat, we had the family with us who don't have the patience for engine work, although we just sat at arough 12 knots wherever we went. To be honest, even when we had the v8 big blocks in it, we rarely went over this speed for two reasons 1) Because we found that plaining scared the kids, made all the cutlery, plates, food etc come crashing out of the cupboards below deck 2) I didn't like spending £200 an hour on petrol.Since fitting the diesels, we have found it now costs around £40 - £50 an hour and ticks along very comfortable on our various visits to Burnham Yacht harbour.It was stored out of the water for ten years before I bought it and its been back out for two years since. So has spent a chunk of its life out of the water.I have a stack of manuals, original build sheets and history to go with .It is very stable on open water as it is designed as a sea faring vessel, but would suit cruising such as Norfolk Broads.Currently moored in Great WakeringFor more information or viewing please call 07813677661Please note, I will not accept offers on it, the price is the price to save everyone wasted time in bargaining.
