Bertie has one of the best Lister SR2 diesel engines we’ve ever seen, she starts like a brand new car; on the button. Experienced boaters will tell you that the engine is no big deal, until it breaks, then it’s a very big deal, then it’s a nightmare. So beginning with a good engine is absolutely vital. 


The hull should be the biggest consideration however, and we have rebuilt the stern and Uxeter plate, welded the problem areas on the bow, blacked and attached new anodes. We are confident that she will survey well and we encourage you to do so with the offer of a free lift for survey. 


Inside she’s a pretty little thing and with a bit of modernisation could be really charming. You get a lot for the money with this boat. 


Come and visit us at Hemel Marina to see Bertie and other boats we have (not all of them are online as we have such a high turnover). Our aim is always to provide a sound hull and engine to boaters on a budget, so if you’re in the market for somewhere beautiful to live in for the price of a second hand car, you should definitely pay us a visit. We’re open for viewings Tuesday - Friday 9-5 and Saturdays 9-3. 


Message me and I’ll Whatsapp a video of the boat.
