Description

Finally, the opportunity you have been looking for has arrived!

This stunning timber vessel, with a long and remarkable history is waiting for new owners to love and care for her. Built in 1915 by W. Holmes & Co at McMahons Point in Sydney, she has been everything from a milk delivery vessel in Nambucca Heads, a personal carrier for the Royal Australian Navy, a commuter Ferry on Pittwater, Sydney and more recently the Hawksbury River.

This gorgeous Timber cruiser has recently had her Engine rebuilt and is loaded with everything you need to begin or expand your charter operations.

Some of her great features include:

• Liquor Licence
• 1E survey for 120Pax (Including 2 Crew)
• Recent Gearbox Overhauled
• Full Engine Rebuild in 2007
• Currently operating and booking Charters ahead for 2015/2016

These boats do not come available that often, especially at such a competitive price, which includes the business branding and all assets. For further information, or to organise a viewing, please contact our Pittwater Office today.
