This classic weekender has been fully restored in 2009 for her current 3rd owner. Extensive work was done including the replacement of her engine. She now has a 2009 model Lombardine 240hp turbo charged diesel with a very low 70 hours on the meter. Cruise speed is a comfortable 18 knots with WOT around 22 knots. 2 new stainless steel fuel tanks were fitted at that time of re powering.
Reaped in history which is available right back to the original owners details. Original plans from J. Botterill & Sons are available
Build construction was Clinker planked Queensland Maple Ply on to Silver Ash ribs, through nailed with copper nails clinched on roves.
