Broker's Comments

This Cruiser Longboat shares the same hull as the original Longboat, yet with a cabin. The Cruiser Longboat was introduced and sold side by side with the standard open boat. Introduced in 1970 and replaced in 1979 by the Coaster. This Cruiser Longboat has a small modification as the current owner added a midship helm wheel and engine controls to make it easier to handle when undertaking his research, for which he was awarded an MBE.

This vessel has been well maintained and includes the mizzen mast, rudder, tiller and boom.
There is a trailer available and this can be negotiated separately

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
