Service & Maintenance

This boat has been meticulously maintained throughout. Her current owner is a qualified Marine Engineer who is  fanatical about the maintenance and upkeep of the boat. The engine room is exceptionally clean and all the on-board systems are fully functional and operational.

The boat was lifted in May 2011, when she was sanded back and new antifoul applied. She also had all her anodes replaced at the same time.


Broker's Comments

This fantastic boat provides everything you could want in a safe and comfortable semi displacement cruiser. With its spacious Master Cabin & Ensuite, two further cabins  and second heads all with full height headroom,  as well as its large saloon area, this boat feels much bigger than her length would suggest. The wonderful teak wood interior, coupled with its expansive aft deck, fore deck & flybridge,  means that this boat lends itself to socialising & entertaining with friends, or as a very safe and comfortable family cruiser. Her current owners have maintained her meticulously and have added a host of extra features including new s/s railings, new exterior decking, full cabin & heads heating, a new hot & cold domestic water system, full size oven & ceramic hob to name a few. All these features combined with her 6KVA generator, full navigation & electronics package and the larger 306 HP Diesel Engines mean that she is very well equipped for mid range cruising whatever the weather & time of year. Such is her condition and level of equipment that she could also be considered suitable as a liveabord

The Tarquin Boat Company ( Trader  Boats ) are known for building solid reliable boats using quality craftsmanship. This 41 + 2 is no exception and offers classic styling, generous accommodation and admirable performance. Having been continually updated & maintained, this particular boat is in great condition and looks much newer than she is. She is loaded with all the features and extras you could wish for and offers exceptional value for money. The boat is only available due toi the owner buying bigger. The current mooring is available for approx. 12 months (subject to conditions) Inspection of this boat is highly recommended and she is currently lying in Southampton, we hold keys and she is available for viewings at any time.
