Danish Fishing Vessel


Built as a fishing vessel in Denmark in 1933, converted to a yacht in her current form about 20 years ago with a new interior, new deck, superstructure and a lot of replacement of the hull structure. Very nicely built interior with large double forecabin and a twin aft cabin plus a large central saloon and spacious deck house with galley and interior helm. Hundested 2cyl diesel installed new in 1972, a very smooth continuous running engine with a variable pitch propellor giving ahead and astern. Although she looks a bit rough on the outside, she is a very solid vessel and is in running condition so can quite easily be steamed away for the work to be completed. A great opportunity to obtain a vessel of this type which has a manageable project element rather than a complete rebuild.
