HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:

Sevnt 4 is one of a group of Admiralty vessels designed on Motor Fishing Vessel lines to undertake general coastal duties during and after the Second World War. The idea was that after de-commissioning they would be sold into fishing however in reality most went in to private ownership as did MFV 74.

After some years on the South Coast Sevnt 4 was brought up on to the non-tidal River Severn at Worcester where she remained for many years in various ownerships and often used as a live-aboard in the yacht basin.  Following her owners move to Milford on Haven Sevnt 4 was motored to West Wales where some years later she changed hands and was bought by a professional marine engineer. During this time a substantial amount of work was carried out aboard including some hull re-planking and engine gearbox rebuild.  In the current four year ownership Sevnt 4 has substantially been upgraded throughout which a top quality interior refit and installation of new systems and equipment. During a visit to the West Isles Sevnt 4 was re-caulked with traditional oakum at Largs. A substantial steel shoe was also fitted to the bottom of the keel.

Following the refit Sevnt 4 has cruised to Northern France, Brittany, Scotland and locally in the Haven.
