1990 Souter Mersey Class Lifeboat

St Peter Port, Guernsey

£94,995

Welded aluminium alloy constructed Mersey Class Lifeboat (#1166), with tunnels providing propeller protection and enabling the boat to beach without legs, which was built for the RNLI by Green Marine and Souter Shipyard in 1990. A unique opportunity to acquire a fully functional piece of RNLI history. A considerable sum has recently been spent by the current owner on numerous upgrades including new Garmin electronics, 240 volt AC shore supply with cabin sockets / battery charger, 12 man canister life raft, in addition to having the hull professionally treated, epoxy coated and antifouled. April 2021 survey available on request. Inspection recommended.
