Vessel has been very well maintained throughout, very sea worthy & water tight, I work 25 pots on a leader, previous owner worked 30 to 35 pots on string more than ample deck space, Only selling due to not having time to work boat due to other commitments,

will not be selling any gear at this time,

will only sell boat & license if asking price is met,


If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
