Broker's Comments

This Tug/Workboat was originally built for the Navy and is now being used for dredging in an enclosed dock.

She does not have a current ticket as not needed presently. She has a Tow Hook, A Frame, Anchor Winch and a Crane fitted on deck.

PLEASE NOTE: The boat will need some attention before she goes to sea as she has only been used in the dock for many years !

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