Whilst I like the boat and consider it to be the right size/condition, I'm unable to reconcile the price. I appreciate that whilst much work and expense has been lavished, it is generally agreed that money spent is seldom regained - it merely makes the boat more saleable. The same applies to so many things.
To be honest, I feel that this boat is worth a maximum of £10,000 to me and therefore will have to pass up on the opportunity. Should the owner wish to consider that, then please come back to me.

"Surf Scoter" is a very special boat indeed, she was purchased by her present owner in 1977, the second owner from new and she remains Part 1 British Registered. She was cascover sheathed from new, she has the original laid teak decks and overall remains in largely condition, backed up a 2022 survey report. Several of her keels bolts were checked around 3 years ago and he masts and rig have been removed to store each winter. Her present owner has sailed her extensively around the UK and abroad and is regretfully selling her due to his advancing years.
