Additional Information:

Ideal mussel/seaweed line boat, ready to work, with code. The surveyor says she is a credit to my OCD but just come for a look and find out for yourself. She is the perfect platform for seaweed farming with a huge working area.
Built above the deck is a stainless frame (with a cert) that straddles the deck and overshoots the starboard gunwhale with four winches and grab anchors. Each is tested to SWL 400kg and the whole system represents a tried and tested commercial fishing system. There is a beam to move bags around the deck. She is code restricted to 1000kg payload but can carry 4 ton no problem.

The 2 Perkins diesels have only done one season from new and they start on the button. She steams along steadily at the usual 7.5 knots at 1800 revs which is about right. Gearboxes are PRM 500's with a 2-1 reduction.

She comes with a workboat code for 6 crew, 20 miles from a safe haven and is ready to steam and work at the turn of the key. Anyone who wants to know how she handles as a workboat can ring Westcountry Mussels and ask for Gary.

The life raft is rented and will need adopting. Ring me anytime for information or to arrange an inspection. The enormous deck area would make her a fine angling or dive boat as well. I have a diver lift somewhere if it's needed.


If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
