Broker's Comments

Traditional Scottish design with canoe stern. She has a very marked sheer forward giving a high, dry bow for steep northern seas.

Planked in larch fastened with galvanised iron boat nails to heavy sawn oak frames.
Sheer strake and 2 planks below + bilge strake are in iroko.

Spacious, clear, columbian pine laid deck, caulked and payed with pitch. High bulwarks all round on close spaced oak stanchions, heavy capping rail and cavil bar, all painted with painted cover boards.

Midships hatch to the hold approx 6’ x 4’ with heavy timber coamings and steel checker plate lift-off lid fitted with an opening hatchway.

Steel wheel-house with mess cabin behind. Stern access door.

Hydraulic steering to steel plate rudder.

Kelvin TS8 8-cylinder turbo charged diesel produces 320hp at 1000rpm.
8knts at 800rpm.
1800 galls fuel in 2 steel tanks in the engine room.
240v diesel generator.
Engine start batteries on 24v circuits.
200 galls water tank forward.

An earlier version was also built in 1965.

She has been converted to a House Boat and now requires this to be completed, restored and refurbished.
She would make a good value Livaboard now!
