Survey available from 2016 with the conclusion that the hull is “structurally sound” and will “continue to give good service for many years if a good standard of maintenance is applied”.
Hull freshly blacked in August 2019 with six new anodes fitted. Previously blacked in 2016.
Sinbad has been our beloved home for the past two years. We are only selling because we are moving back onto land to start our own business. This is a lovely and unique boat and is ready to move on as a full liveaboard with lots of creature comforts. Basically a floating flat!
If you are new to boating then I would be very happy to show you the ropes too.
Viewings strongly recommended and serious buyers only, please.
