Broker's Comments

This lovely 55ft Semi Trad was built in 2011 by the well thought of Paul Widdowson of Nottingham but was not launched until 2014. The owners wanted to add an element of tradition and therefore put a vintage 1962 air cooled Lister in her, which was completely rebuilt in 2014 when it was fitted and has done 5 hours since. The boat has not left the marina since arriving 3 years ago.

Please note that the mooring that is available with the boat may not be the one pictured but elsewhere in the marina.

Please note the owner has just started to give her a new coat of paint and the new cream is visible when you look at the bow photos.

These boat details are subject to contract.
