Other information:

Look away if you are faint hearted. I built this boat for a private fishery in the Exe concentrating on high volumes of seed mussels as you can see from the pictures. We have filled her many, many times with 24 ton loads. It was coded until 2016 but I now use her exclusively in sheltered waters where you can walk ashore if you get stuck. She will fish like a demon between 2m and 4m although you can push it a bit further if you are on a good bed. The fishing head and elevator are stainless and have been developed and improved over 20 years. She will fish any shellfish at least 20 times as fast as a dredger and in perfect condition as well. 20 tons in a hour is common but only on good ground. The elevator system has been assessed by the MSC as benign (no bycatch, no damage) and I have used 2 of these boats in a SPA, an SAC, an SSSI and a Ramsar site for 20 years. There is a bow thruster and a spud leg. I am selling because the EA recharged the estuary with 350,000 tons of sand which washed onto my beds and wont move and has ruined the seed settlement. If you have a shallow resource and you want to bulk catch it in perfect condition this is your man, you wont see another.


DO NOT SEND MONEY TO SELLERS YOU CANNOT VERIFY AS GENUINE.  If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
