Other information:
Built in 1960 by Herd & McKenzie (Buckie) this is an opportunity to own a part of Scottish Fishing History. A substantial amount of work has been carried out to keep the original lines of the vessel. Very few of these boats still exist, particularly with the original engine, controls, and wheelhouse.
This is a very sympathetic conversion to a charter vessel. The boat is listed on the National Historic Ships Register.

Boat was slipped in April 2016, new anodes fitted and, cleaned and painted. Annual MECAL survey completed in May 2017, and all safety equipment up to date. 14 man life raft is newly serviced (next service due 2019) and included in the sale of the vessel.

The vessel is fitted with central heating, driven by two reflex stoves running 5 radiators, so the boat is kept nice and warm. Wheelhouse recently repainted and varnished.

The vessel has a ketch rig, and sails are included in the sale of the vessel. A new bowsprit was fitted this spring and new masts and rigging were fitted in 2013

The boat has been mainly used for fishing and live aboard charters, and would lend it self well to this sort of work again.

Help with delivery may be possible.
