Wooden Ships Comments on this 36′ Seaborne Marine motor yacht
Designed by John Bain and built by Seaborne Marine in 1968.
A development of Bains earlier motor yacht designs with extra beam and stiffer hull shape to make a more comfortable and practical family motor yacht. At only 36′ she offers a lot of space for the length and is not an overly large boat to berth and handle.
Split accommodation with sleeping cabins fore and aft and central saloon plus a large wheelhouse with comfortable seating makes for a very practical yacht.
Major professional refit about 10 years ago when a new deck was fitted with some new deck beams. A new pair of Beta 43hp diesel engines were professionally fitted with associated systems in 2005 and have only done about 200 hours since.
A nice comfortable and practical motor yacht being offered at a very reasonable price for a quick sale.
