For the traditionalists amongst us she would be a wonderful trip down memory lane chugging along for some R&R whether this may be a bit of fishing, cray fishing or for that matter a sun downer cruise.
As could be expected from this design of vessel they have wonderful sea keeping abilities and can carry a good deal of weight. She could be just the thing for ferrying victuals or crew.
From an accommodation perspective she has a single double cabin that can accommodate two comfortably.
The hull is an old GRP cape craft with a solid metal keel going from the bow to stern, the keel has large U-bolts which where used back in the day to pull the fishing vessels on and off the shore. The previous owner found the hull in Houtbay and then spent three years building the deck and superstructure, completing the build in 2014. The most recent improvements, done by CT Shipwrights, was the instillation of the back bench which also doubles as a 1700 litre tank (never used).
