Wooden Ships Comments on this Motor Launch

Built by Rustons of Mylor, Cornwall in about 1964.

Purchased by the current owner with a rather ugly wheelhouse, she was refitted in 2014 with the new laid teak foredeck and large aft cockpit to make a very attractive and practical motor launch.

The accommodation under the foredeck is basic with space to fit something rather special if desired.  There is enough room for 2 good sized single berths to make her an excellent weekend camping boat.

 

Length                  21’6”
