An opportunity to purchase a very well maintained and refurbished Pilot Boat, (currently wrapped as photos describe). NEW PRICE!
This boat has been built fit for purpose, (extra strength and safety for rough sea conditions) and has recently undergone a very expensive refit to make a comfortable, fast passagemaker. Recently she has been used as a recreational boat and would make an efficient tender to reach holiday houses through rough passages eg Great Barrier Island or The Sounds. With accommodation for 3 she is powered by 2 x Twin Perkins M300 6 cylinder marinised marine 300 PS diesel engines.
Some History: These vessels have been around since the mid 60s and scores have been built. They originate from yards around the Solent, and many vessels of this model have been ﬁtted out in different boat building yards. It appears that the hulls were built and then sold for completion by others. Most are GRP. The engines vary greatly from 212 hp diesels to the later model Nelson 42 MK 11. 1998, described as a 44ft vessel, powered by twin 420 hp Caterpillar engines.
