Wooden Ships Comments on this 18′ motor launch

Clinker motor launch built by Hinks of Appledore in 1990.  She has worked as a passenger ferry most of her life but is now in need of a refit.

The majority of the hull appears sound and she has a good engine.  The boat was afloat and in use until July this year.

She is a very substantial boat, wide in the beam making her very stable.  She would make an ideal passenger ferry or work boat, but with some refinement would be a lovely family launch.

Currently on a road trailer, not included in the sale, but can be used to transport her wherever she needs to be

Length on Deck                 18′

Beam                                    7′
