Broker's Comments

This Tug was built for the MOD and worked in various dockyards around the coast before being released from the RMAS around 20 years ago.  For the last few years of her service she was converted from a Tug into an underwater range trials vessel and served at Kyle of Lochalch.  When she was released from the RMAS she was used as a cruising live aboard and the current owner has used her around the coastal waters.

She needs a bit of time and effort spent on her but could make an impressive vessel to live on board. There is a full walk round video available to view if you are interested please contact the broker.

These boat details are subject to contract.
