‘Montego Lady’ is a 1970’s Eastwood 24 with a Wortham Blake Ford petrol engine and Wortham Blake gearbox.Lengh – 24’Beam – 8’6Draught – 2’6The boat is moored on the River Stort at Luxford Moorings, Sheering Mill Lane, Sawbridgeworth, Essex CM21.I brought her a few years ago. I don’t know anything about boats, and I have hardly used it. I will be giving up the mooring, so it is possible that the buyer could take over. Its a large mooring, could take a narrow boat. The boat could possibly stay on the mooring, but this would have to be discussed with the owners of the boat yard. The boat needs a little bit of work but nothing too serious. She would benefit from some cosmetic work inside. She has vinyl cushions, usable but not very pretty. Actually, everything is usable but could be made prettier! The bathroom has previously been removed and used as storage space, so would need a refit. Areas of the rubbing strake need repairing or replacing. The hood is all there and working. There are a few small repairs, stitching on the zip has come away and will need re-sewing. She has plenty of storage space and lots of cupboards and worktop space. Galley has a stainless steel sink with hot and cold taps. The gas has previously been disconnected but easily reinstalled. There are plug sockets in the cabin and cockpit as the boat has shore power. The 12v lighting all works fine. 4 berth accommodation. Dinning table converts into double bed and V shaped bed at front of cabin. Large cockpit with helm seat rear seating and storage.She has a Ford Wortham Blake 1500cc four cylinder inboard petrol engine, driving through a reduction gearbox to a conventional prop shaft and propeller. The engine starts and runs. My dad said it may need a new head gasket or a new valve as the compression is down on the 4th cylinder, but it does start, runs, pumps water and can be driven away.Brand new exhaust pipe fitted last week. Viewing would need to be pre-arranged as I’m not local and the moorings are within a secure locked boat yard. She comes with some paper work/ history. I require the buyer to make contact with me within 24 hours of the end of the auction, to inform me of their plans. There is no immediate rush for the boat to be moved, but full payment and mooring fees will need to be paid for.
