Alan you are spot on. I think that the inboard diesel may struggle to reach the 45 mark with more hull in the water, and that hull looks like it has been anti-fouled. I would guess that this boat is the same year as Blue Ice from the detail, so £22k is a good price. As the boat appears to be ex-charter, the engine hours may be high, but the Yamaha 240hp has a good reputation and can clock up thousands of hours in the right hands.
