Or live-a-board and rent out your home, or set-up as an office; so many options, compared to other boat types, such as mono hulls, due to the stability, low draft and extensive living space of this fine vessel, this boat has always been impeccably maintained, by the retired ship’s captain owner.
Built professionally by boat builder William Peddell in Victoria Point QLD. Over the last five year period, the boat has had the refurbishment of all major structural components, carried out by professional boat builders at great expense.
