This is the best MFV for conversion I have seen for many years. Appears not to have fished, a very handy size for a motor yacht, appears to be a sound hull, in commission and ready for cleaning up and fitting out.. No obvious structural faults but in need of a new owner. A very good buy at this price, lying afloat in Cornwall. Recently bottom recaulked
