Broker's Comments

This Historic lifeboat was built in 1974 and was one of only three built, the one we offer for sale is 70--003 the ex-Clovelly Lifeboat which was released from RNLI service in 1989.
In 2001/2 she had an extensive refit at Buckie Shipyard with 3 additional cabins with 11 berths being formed along with a new galley and a reconfiguration of the saloon area, the present owner purchased her in 2003 and in 2004 she again returned to the shipyard for more extensive work, this time her bulwarks were raised forward, rear wings and an after deck were constructed given a vast deck area above the saloon.
Slipped every two years repainted and any work that may be required is carried out without compromise, she has also a full complement of electronics on board.
All documents and papers are in order along with handbooks covering all the equipment on board and will be passed over to her new owner.
This vessel has been built with great attention to detail and with materials that have been used to the highest standard of construction throughout.

Early viewing is recommended.
