Wooden Ships Comments
Built in 1986 in Bristol by Mayhew Motor Launches on a mould taken from an old river launch. The GRP hull was fitted out with varnished mahogany to great effect.
Originally fitted with a steam engine, this was replaced with a conventional diesel around 2004.
Used extensively in present ownership for escorting long river rowing expeditions, she has been professionally maintained and is in very good order.
Comes with a galvanised road trailer and all over fitted cover.
