The boat builder aimed to produce an English built luxury motor cruiser to compete with Chris Craft. Initially, the hulls were built using double diagonal construction in mahogany, with teak decks and cabin sides with oak frames. This particular vessel has been modified at some stage to have a flybridge fitted. Owned by the current owner since 2012 she has restored to her current condition including the removal and replacement of the complete upper structure, re-wired, and both engines have been stripped and overhauled. This motorboat is only being sold as she is now too large for the owner to handle on his own due to his health. She was last ashore in 2017 when she was antifouled and anodes changed.
