Broker's Comments

An opportunity to purchase a classically designed slipper launch built by Woottens Boatyard. This design offers the beauty of a wooden boat with the practicality of a GRP hull below the waterline. The all-varnished topsides are in great condition and an earlier survey would indicate no deterioration of the GRP below the waterline.
The vessel is powered by a Watermota Sea Tiger engine which runs quietly and started easily. At 28ft in length, the vessel can easily take 7 passengers in comfort - 4 on the Lloyd Loom chairs and 3 on the upholstered bench seat at the stern. Recent work by the current owner includes bespoke champagne glasses with mahogany holders, and a hidden champagne locker fitted in a newly laid mahogany floor, keeping drinks perfectly chilled.
The vessel is equipped with a pram hood, tonneau cover plus full summer and winter covers to ensure the stunning looks of the deck are easily maintained.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
