Dorothy and Philip Constant, Former RNLI 42ft Watson Class Lifeboat. Built 1962, Groves and Guttridge. 2x Gardner 4LW engines/gearboxes.
Ex Shoreham Lifeboat, approx. 27 years of service before being used as a passenger boat in Orkney, a training vessel in Norfolk before being used by the current owner, a boat builder, as a workboat and towing vessel.
She is always kept in a “on the button” condition. She is fitted with a SidePower bow thruster which makes her very manoeuvrable. Mechanically and structurally she’s in good condition although the superstructure is badly in need of a repaint.
Mainly original except for the forward accommodation that has been stripped out for a refit. The shelter has been fitted with a removable canvas extension that makes bad weather cruising more comfortable.
She is booked into dry dock w/c 23rd May for one week and viewing of the underwater hull can be arranged.
Offers in the region of £16000.
