Broker's Comments

It is fairly rare to find a 1942 Classic Launch in serviceable condition but this one is!
It has had 2 new engines in 2018 and is ready to go at the turn of a key
When you board the boat it has a really solid feel and the layout is ideally suited for a live aboard or weeks away having both heating and a large double aft cabin
The hull is copper sheathed which gives extra protection to the wooden hull
The boat was built at Lady B boat yard in Shoreham just a few miles from where she is lying at present
If you are tempted to buy this sort of boat then I recommend viewing this one at your earliest convenience as it is priced to sell and I don't think it will be long before she has a new owner
