Additional Information:

I got the boat during covid but have no time to fish now as life came back completely to normal, it just doesn't suit my lifestyle. I spent £35k on it, including everything. I'm hoping for £25 000 + VAT which would be £30 000 in total.

The boat is ready to fish and I mean it, everything is at the latest standards and no issues with it at all. Mainly used for mackerels and Cods but the licence comes with Shellfish entitlement as well

Also, the deal would include all the fishing gear, I'm not planning to hold back anything from the following list:
- The name and number of the boat (less hassle with paperwork)
- Bilge cleaner, jizer and some handy tools
- Fire bucket
- Ropes
- Safety ladder
- 4 Rollers
