Wooden Ships Comments
MFV built by Herd and Mackenzie of Buckie in 1960 as a Seine netter. Sold out of fishing and converted for charter work and sea angling.
More recently she came to Dartmouth and was sadly abandoned by her previous owners so she has been seized and is now the property of the harbour authority. She is being sold as is on the condition that a new owner moves the vessel to another location.
She cannot move under her own steam as the main engine is seized.
The exact condition of the hull is unknown but there is clear evidence of structural decay and problems that will need to be addressed.
This is not a project for the faint hearted or inexperienced but if a large MFV is being sought she could be returned to fine fettle once again with a major rebuild.
Length on Deck 73'
Beam 20'
Draft 10'
