Traditional Clinker made River Boat

No Reserve


Sympathetically refurbished; Stuart single cyclinder engine; 15ft  red, white and blue vessel with accompanying trailer

At no reserve this magnificent little boat should fly (or sail….) away. Whether you live by the sea, on the broads or have a little hideaway you go and visit occasionally, she should be for you.  
We are not sure how far she dates back but we assume she was first built between the 1930s and 1960s. The owner believes that she was originally used to transport goods between Littlehampton and Arundle in Sussex. More recently she has been floating in Chichester Marina after our vendor had completed a very sympathetic restoration.  
Showing amongst the photographs are some scans of what the boat looked like before work began. The majority of it being made up of completely rebuilding the stern. We believe the engine was also tinkered with to get it running, even coming with the original Stuart instruction book and two spare spark plugs!  
Due to ill health, work on the little clinker has unfortunately ceased and she is now ready for a new custodian to take her out onto the water. Two sails accompany her (if you run out of fuel) although they may need a little stitching after not being used for many years.  
Red, white and blue, coming with a trailer too, it might be hard to hide for a Christmas present but hey, who needs special occasions for presents!
