Broker's Comments

What a very pretty vessel, coded to MCA standards as a passenger ferry for day and evening river cruises. This vessel underwent an £8000 refurbishment in Spring 2018 and is being sold with the opportunity to take over her existing cruises in the Plymouth area, or she could be easily transported and re-coded for use elsewhere. Expertly maintained and kept up to operating standards, the new owner would have little to do for many years to come.
