Owners Comments

My wife and I purchased ‘Old Harry’ towards the end of 2014. A lovely boat, structurally sound with good engines. I set about refurbishing her for our own use and pleasure. I did not have a budget in mind, however was determined to get it right.

An example of my thinking in the refurbishment – Our first night on board. Well the mattress was worn out, a very uncomfortable night. Remedy, get a new one made to measure. No, not a foam one, a proper sprung mattress. We have always had the most comfortable nights on board since. If anything was not exactly right, it had to be made right.

We have now sadly come to the decision that we should sell her to someone who will enjoy her as we have.

All invoices of the works completed, and recent surveys can be provided.
