BROKERS NOTE:

An attractive period style motor-yacht from the board of a well known designer. Offered as a going concern but requiring some on-going restoration to hull planking and the transom. A worth-while and interesting project, currently used as a liveaboard on the River Thames. BSS Cerificate.
