OCTOBER 2021 - Owner motivated to sell!
This classic twin screw diesel yacht is a gentleman's motoryacht built in the sturdy tradition of these vessels by W.J Beecham Marine Ltd in 1967, with a iroko on oak hull. She is equally at home on the inland waterways and coastal waters of the UK and mainland Europe.
She had the privilege of being the Communication Centre for the first Round-Britain Offshore Powerboat Race in 1969 and was featured in Motor Boat & Yachting. Currently berthed in Spain’s Costa del Sol where she has been a comfortable liveaboard for several years and provides economical cruising in the warm Mediterranean Sea.
The current owners have lovingly maintained her for many years which is reflected in her excellent condition.
In addition to being a fine seaworthy small ship, this TSDY could provide the new owner with an ideal holiday or permanent home in the sun giving ample spacious and comfortable accommodation. Average fuel consumption is 20 litres per hour and her current berth is available subject to separate agreement.
