Reluctant sale of Olwen. The boat is a part finished project with the substantial work completed. Olwen was built by Fernie Fabrications and has good lines and is a pleasure to cruise. She is ready to be fitted out and is a blank canvas. She was purchased in a dilapidated state and has be stripped out cleaned, de-rusted and painted before being insulated as can be seen on the photos. There is a recent survey available and all the work advised has been done including welding and overplaying etc. at a cost of over £4000. She has been sorted out internally as well so there will be no further need for work on the hull. The front catch cover which was causing a lot of issues with water ingress has been replaced in steel. She is now water tight and waiting to be completed. Olwen was blacked about 2 years ago following the overplating.
Olwen has a permanent, transferable mooring in the highly sought after Springfield Marina. The marina is on the river Lee with Walthamstow marshes behind and Springfield park opposite. The mooring has its own garden area next to the towpath where a shed or storage area can be erected. The photos shows the mooring and materials currently stored there for the ongoing fit out. As Olwen is moored on the River Lee a widebeam of similar length could be placed there should the new owner wish to upsize in the future.
NB. The photos show Olwen temporarily moored inside the marina while work is being carried out.
Springfield Marina is a fully functioning marina with a chandler and workshop and would be able to complete work on the boat if required by the new owner.
