Wooden Ships Comments on this 15′ Dartmouth Launch
Built by the Wootton Bridge Boatbuilders Ltd in 2005 to a design known as the Dartmouth Launch. She was used a handful of times before being laid up ashore in a dry barn and has not been used for a number of years and is in immaculate condition. The engine has only done 65 hours from new and is in perfect order.
This is a very nice size of launch, easy to handle and launch with one person but big enough to carry a group of people in safety. Her elegant sheer means the bows are relatively high and throw the seas away in a bit of chop.
This is a virtually new boat in superb condition and is absolutely ready to go.
