Broker's Comments

This is a unique ex USA Naval Torpedo Collection Vessel that was built by the famous Higgins Industries of New Orleans in 1955 before being converted 30 years ago over in Hartlepool as a live aboard.

The boat is vast and has a huge amount of living, deck and storage space and is ready for a new owner to personalise her decor and move her to a new home.

From the wheelhouse there is access to the sundeck and outside steering position with seating for 8-10. Large upper deck space with crane to lift a tender onto a fitted base and there is plenty of space for a BBQ.

These boat details are subject to contract.
