Vessel’s underside was ultra scan thickness tested September 2016 & all found good. This owner since 2009. This vessel was built by Doug Robb, one of New Zealand’s most renowned and trusted small ship builders, Timaru.  He built 44 vessels over 17 years, many of which are still going strong including this gem, with her beautiful corten steel hull showing almost no deterioration. The photos below show some of her clean underwater lines. Vessel is currently used as a successful blue cod boat in Southern waters. Is earlier years she was a trawler and would convert back (gearbox reduction is suitable). For approved buyers there is ample BC05 ACE available.
