Fresh oil, filters, impeller and flush every year.She happily cruises around at 8-9 knots all day, but can be pushed a little harder to get her up and moving.Latest survey was done in 2013 and is still current.We have had this boat for several years with our family of four mum, dad and boys aged 6 and 8 spending many happy long weekends her.The accommodation is made up of a large double v-berth in the fore cabin. The boys have slept in here and to be honest if you had 3 kids you could certainly fit them all in! There is a light and a cupboard plus plenty of stowage in cupboards and under the bed.In the galley there is a 12v/gas fridge with small freezer compartment and a 2 burner gas hob and sink. There is also plenty of cupboard space for crockery, cutlery, food and drinks for long trips.The head has a sink, mirror and is a manual Jabsco toilet. All in perfect working order. The saloon is up from the galley and has a table and bench seating for four, with further stowage under the seats. This also turns into a comfy double berth. We have added a memory foam mattress topper (included in the sale) and it makes for a comfy nights sleep. This is a proper 4 berth as opposed to the 2 berth plus a 1 1/2 berth most boats have.The self draining deck has deep gunnels which makes it lovely and safe to have children on. Overall this has been a great family boat for us (and a great fishing boat!), given a real taste of the adventures to be had at sea with kids.I have always stayed on top of all the maintenance and had her serviced every year. Nothing needs doing to her for this season.She is easy to handle single handed. I have done potting on her single handed but have also had five of us fishing on deck comfortably.We have been all over on this boat, up to Salcombe, via the Eddy Stone. Over to Scillies and loads of great family and fishing trips.The deck wash and self draining decks make her an ideal fishing boat. I am out in her every spare hour I have to haul pots and fish all year round. However, as she has a fully enclosed helm/saloon, she is not just a summer boat. She is warm and comfortable to fish on all year round.Sad to see her go, but bigger adventures await us!She is currently in the water and can be viewed and taken out anytime.Feel free to give me a ring with any serious enquiries.
