These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

It is very important to note, before coming to view this boat, that she only has 1 working engine and will require a new or used replacement. This is reflected in the price.
I am informed, by the owner, that both out drives work, so any replacement engine will need to be compatible.
Other options could include, particularly if you are planning to keep her on a river, fitting an outboard engine.

The timber work, on board, is very solid and looks to be in good condition, however she would benefit from cosmetic work to upholstery, ceiling and wall linings, which are coming away in places.

The cockpit is a great size and well laid out for comfortable cruising, but again, some of the seating could do with some attention.

Sealine are known for making solid boats and after taking the obvious issues into consideration, this boat would make an ideal purchase for someone wishing to breathe new life into this popular brand and model.
