LOCH BROOM POST BOAT WITH CUDDY RECENTLY RE-FURBISHED TO HIGH SPEC. AND WITH ROAD TRAILER £2995I understand that only a handful ( if that) of the Post Boat were built with a cuddy and to special order. I’ve only found a trace of one other.The cuddy together with the absence of a centre plate , removable centre thwart, exceptionally spacious interior, boom tent and storage capacity makes for an excellent family cruising/ camping boat.Don’t be misled by the length , look at the photos , it was built as a load carrier and not just for carrying the normal post! It really is very roomy. Better still come and see for yourself.Amongst the work carried out during the refurbishment are the following :-Hull painted internally and externally.All wood stripped back to bare wood and varnished.New sole boards (good quality marine ply epoxy / glass sheathed and painted with non slip deck paint ).Cuddy top removed and rebuilt using T& G boarding, covered by marine ply and layers of epoxy/glass cloth.Majority of fittings replaced with bronze ones ( Oh the cost !!! ).Sails overhauled by Moatts and minor repairs carried out where necessary.Original galvanised standing rigging replaced with new similar.Running rigging renewed using Hempline.Laid teak fore and aft decks.Mast and spars stripped to bare wood, repaired where necessary and re-painted/ varnished.Original mast support in cuddy renewed and made easier to remove.Please note that jib fairleads and cleats will be provided for the purchaser to fix himself as he requires for either single- handed / or crewed use. The bases for these are already in place and may be seen in the photos.The original road trailer manufactured to Character Boats Spec. and with a lowered centre section to enable launching in shallower water appears to be in good condition .Now has new bearings and wheels with tyres PLEASE NOTE: Although there is provision for mounting an outboard in the well within the boat no engine is included in this sale although one may be available by separate negotiation.Also included in the sale are :-Two fenders.Ancor, chain and warp.Boom cover / tent (please note -it will be necessary for the buyer to fit lacing hooks or any other method he wishes to secure the bottom edge of the tent to the hull.Heavy duty winter cover Boat hook.Bilge pump (fitted).I also will only sell to U.K residents – sorry, but there ‘s too many horror stories around.For those genuinely interested, you’re welcome to view in which case please either email me or Tel. 01258 880419 (evenings are best ) to make arrangements.If there’s no reply PLEASE leave your contact number on the answerphone and I’ll get back to you a.s.a.p.
