Wooden Ships Comments on this Clinker motor launch
Clinker motor launch, not known exactly where or when she was built, but judged to be a 1950’s boat.
Professionally cared for in the present ownership, with a thorough refit last winter including a new foredeck, new engine box, rebuilt trailer and all new external paint and varnish.
She is a well equipped boat with a chart plotter, recent engine and good condition Snipe road trailer making her a complete package in good sound condition.
The generous beam and substantial build make her a solid and stable boat, more capable than her length would suggest.
Length Overall 14′
