Maybe at the right price, which I don't think it is anywhere near but not a boat to be trying to sell again in a few years when you become bored.
She was built in Guernsey, grp moulded with balsa cored deck. Designed by John Askham, assistant to Peter Thornycroft when he designed the Nelson pilot boats. This is a later reincarnation of the Nelson, designed a few years after he came up with the Weymouths and Humbers. So a good pedigree and a solidly built boat. The hull and superstructure have been Awlgrip'd maybe the epoxy story developed from that.
Also the Perkins have 400 hours, not 1400, fitted 2005 with new shafts and props. I've been in the engine room, you could eat your dinner out of there!
Been on the market for a while and been told I can get it a lot less than the asking, since the owners a £150,000 public servant I'm hoping he'll pity me
