 A custom yacht builder in Sutton-Ashton, Nottingham, United Kingdom, this Birchwood tri-cabin cockpit motoryacht is in beautiful condition. Previously owned by a famous celebrity, she essentially remained unused for ten years after his passing. Repowered with twin Caterpillar diesel engines, she is capable of more than 20 knot cruising speeds.  The engines were replaced and have less than 800 hours on them.  We received orders from the estates attorney to upgrade the boat, now complete and rounding out this superb yacht to "like new" standards.  With three cabins, each with en-suite head and shower, excellent equipment and a modern design, this is a unique opportunity to own a spacious & wonderful yacht.  If you ever thought of owning a high quality yacht for elegant cruising, this is it.  We have been directed to price her to sell quickly.  Trades accepted. OUTSTANDING VALUE!  Priced under $240,000.00 and all reasonable offers will be considered.  Come see her; you will not be disappointed.  Low interest financing available..
