It will be very sad to see my good friend Condorline sell, but work and personal commitments are forcing me to part with this lovely old boat. I acquired her in 2010, on a residential mooring in London, she is fully equiped as a liveaboard, with hot water, central heating, 240v, 12v and a 24v system for the main engine.We have some information inherited from previous owners, Condorline was built as a Naval Pinnace in 1909 by J.S. White & Co, Cowes. Isle of Wight. Most of her military life seems to have been spent at Chatham with a brief stint with the Police on the Thames in the 1920s. She was almost certainly back at Chatham during the second World War, and as such it is probable she was in Operation Dynamo but we have not been able to verify this, though she did earn her mooring fees 3 years ago as an extra in the film Dunkirk.She has a two berth aft cabin, with a single and double berth also available in the saloon. There is a relatively new Kabola diesel boiler fitted, which needs a service but this provides hot water and central heating, I lived aboard her comfortably for 4 years on the mooring in London. She has a fridge, basic twin gas hob and ample storage.In the heads there is a sink, shower, Jabsco electric toilet (7 years old) with the option of ejecting waste in open sea or to a holding tank. There is also small twin tub washing machine, that has had little use, there is access through this area to the chain locker.In 2011 a new reconditioned Ford 4D Diesel engine was fitted, it has done less than 30 hours since. In addition the boat came with a BUKH wing engine, this was also removed, new pistons and liners were fitted and the injectors were serviced.I do need to have a new diesel pump fitted, this will be resolved before the sale. Other features include the main mast and mison mast are less than 8 years old, all was fully rigged in 2013, with a main sail, mison sail, jib and whisker pole. Though quite large and heavy she is perfectly happy under sail only, in light winds.In 2012, the Victron Combi Invertor was installed to give full control of shore power to charge batteries and or at sea to power the boat. She will be sold with a Garmin Navigation and sounder/fish finder (4 years old), hand held and fixed radios, tender and outboard, 12v TV with dvd player.She has some amazing period features, including the panelling to the wheel house, original anchor, windlass, cleats, davits, copper dorade vents, search light etc.She is moored on a secure berth at Weymouth Marina.The boat is looking tired, needing fresh varnish and paint above the decks, new locker cover and some fibre glass patch repairs are needed, but essentially she is pretty sound. She needs love and the attention that a fine old lady deserves.
