I have spent close to 60k on this boat over the years – New engine, new skin-tank for better cooling, new central heating system, new electrics including inverter/charger, refitted inside including wet room, new kitchen, new external paint, all pumps have been replaced (water, shower, bilge) plus many other things. This boat is solid and nothing needs doing mechanically or maintenance wise other than the hull blacking (should cost about 400 pounds).Please call if you have any questions – Nick – 07843 573 629
