Wooden Ships Comments on this 16′ launch 

A well built and sturdy launch which has just had a thorough refit and is now in excellent structural and cosmetic condition and is in regular use by the owners.


The large beam means she is a very stable launch with a lot of carrying capacity for her length, but at only  16′ long she is suitable for dinghy berths and landing pontoons making her a very useable river launch.
