This is a fabulous, classic wooden speedboat which was bought as a project by my brother. Ill health has meant it has stood for two years. I know very little about its history but I can see quality in it. It has the original flag pole and with the right person could be beautiful and worth an awful lot of money. Both my husband and I have no time to complete the renovation ourselves hence the reason for selling.
On 15-Mar-17 at 19:10:10 GMT, seller added the following information:We have had so many questions about this boat I have revised the listing and added more photos. The trailer is included and was custom made. It is roadworthy and has fairly new tyres. This would have been a great project had me and my husband not got demanding full time jobs. I pictured it with new leather seats and cushions with a hamper and glasses of champagne as we meandered down the Thames. Please find her a happy home where someone will lovingly restore her. My brother was told that only 13 of this boat had been made. He has a keen eye for quality
