A very rare chance to acquire one of these rugged motor boats which was originally built for commercial patrol use but well suited to diving, fishing or economical coastal cruising. A comprehensive re-fit has just been completed to a high standard including new bulkheads, most windows, full rewire, upholstery, plumbing, heating and navigation equipment. Her twin Perkins 115hp diesel engines provide excellent fuel economy of 9 litres per hour for both engines at 7 knots with a current maximum speed of 8/9 knots which we believe could be increased with different propellers.

The accommodation offers 4 berths in 2 cabins with excellent headroom throughout.
FORECABIN: Fitted with two generous single V-berths and good stowage, the cabin could easily be reconfigured to offer a large offset double berth to port with seating area or extra storage to starboard.
HEADS: Separate compartment to port with Lavac marine toilet (overhauled 2011), wash basin with Whale combination shower tap (new 2011), shower pump out, ventilation (new 2011) and stowage.
SALOON: Passage way with a settee berth and excellent stowage leading up to the wheelhouse saloon. Large enclosed wheelhouse consisting of a raised helm position with full instrumentation and spacious seating area around a large table which can also be used as an additional berth, or be adapted to convert to a double berth very simply. Linear galley to starboard equipped with a Nelson Spinflo stainless steel 2-burner gas cooker with grill and oven (new 2011), Waeco upright fridge (new 2011), twin drainer sink with hot and cold water supply and ample stowage.
Eberspacher D2 diesel fired heating system (new 2011/12). Hot and cold pressurised water supply via 20 litre calorifier with immersion coil (new 2011/12). All interior cushions and upholstery have been renewed along with all linings and all surfaces have been refinished to a very high standard. The wiring and all interior lights have been replaced along with 4 x new flexible water tanks (2 x 150, 120 and 100 litres) all plumbing, taps and sinks.
Located under cockpit sole and accessed via a large hatch with gas rams (new 2012), 2 x Perkins 6354 6-cylinder 115hp naturally aspirated diesel engines. Fresh water cooled via heat exchangers. Dual Morse single lever controls (most cables new 2011) with electric start. Shaft drive via Borg Warner gearboxes and V-drives to twin 3-bladed propellers (re-pitched July 2012). Water lubricated PSS stern glands (upgraded July 2012). Full Faria engine instrumentation (new 2011). Original 900 litre stainless steel fuel tank with GRP outer skin fitted with new hoses and shut off valves in 2011. Remote control trim tabs (new system 2011 except for the rams and trim plates).
The engines have both been serviced including new filters, oil, anti-freeze, impellers, drive belts, 45ah alternators and reconditioned starter motors in late 2011, new anodes have also been fitted in July 2012.. All cooling hoses have also been checked and replaced where necessary. They start easily without pre-heating, run very well and have proved exceedingly economical to run, averaging 9 litres per hour for both engines at 1300rpm and returning a 7 knot cruising speed.
2 x 125ah service batteries and 4 x 125ah starting batteries, all new end of 2011. Battery bank charged via engine alternators.

Built by Cigala and Bertinetti in 1972 to their own design which is believed to have then been re-developed for leisure use as the Narvalo 33. Heavily laid up blue painted GRP hull with off-white painted superstructure (both primered then 3-4 coats of International Toplac 2011) and grey painted non-slip decks. Substantial construction suited to commercial use fitted with a GRP and Iroko (new Iroko 2011) rubbing strake. Wheel steering to twin rudders. Very stable and seaworthy craft believed to be originally constructed for military patrol and commercial work, then in private ownership since 1981.
A comprehensive refit including professionally renewed bulkheads (1" marine ply), toughened safety glass windows, full re-paint, new wiring, plumbing, upholstery, systems and much more was completed over a 2 year period (late 2010-2012) by the current owner to a high standard.
