Merlin is offered for sale in need of some restoration, essentially all in working order the boat has been lived aboard for several years and was removed from the water over the last 12 months whilst the owner has been away from the boat.

Subsequently Merlin is now being sold as the owner is moving back to dry land…

Conventional in general design Merlin offers a Trad stern with a Thorneycroft T105 engine. The cabin is divided into a living area, galley, off-set bathroom, bedroom, office space and tad stern area.

Equipped with a modern Victron inverter / charger system Merlin is ideal for a committed boat owner who’s willing to get stuck in and restore their own boat.

Overall a very promising project and possibly a cheap way to get on the water.

Call our office to speak with a member of the team if you would like any more info or to make an appointment to view.
