Putting Thistle, my Miller Fifer 33 up for sale. Great boat, she’s sturdy and comfortable, designed on genuine fishing boat lines with overbuilt joinery of 12ins oak beams, carvel planking of 1?ins larch and mahogany, and a long 8ins solid oak keel. Built by James N. Miller & Sons in 1960 at the well-respected boat yard in St Monance, Scotland. She’s a ‘60/40’ motorsailer, hence predominately engine powered but the sails provide some relief on fuel consumption. Heavy displacement and nicely fitted out interior.
Thistle was surveyed and entirely recaulked in summer 2015 and has recently been out the water (July 2018) for a spot more caulking and antifouling. Though happy motoring in her current state, she requires some work before making proper use of the sails. She’s had a long list of improvements over the past year, and by the time of sale the topsides will be repainted and woodwork treated and re-varnished.
Interior comprises of 4 berths in 2 cabins. Forecabin has a double birth, hanging locker, stowage space underneath. Main saloon consists of 2 single berths, table in the middle. Galley to starboard, heads to port with Blakes Baby sea toilet. Cockpit with locker space, enclosed wheelhouse with two seats.
