50.00m (164'1") of warp

The Pilot Boat also has an engine-driven fire pump with deck fittings that has the ability to pump out any compartment
With nearly 600 HP at your fingertips this is a seriously fun boat.
The current owner saw the potential to convert this craft into a comfortable liveaboard. A good start has been made and the forward cabin is taking shape. However, a change in circumstances has meant that completion will fall to the next owner. There is still much to be done and this leaves options open for personal style of fittings and design.
The forward cabin is wide and spacious with a heads en suite. Access to the aft cabin is via a vertical ladder which won't suit everyone. Once there, the cabin has great potential with a shower room attached.
The owner would also be interested in a part-exchange with a smaller boat.
