Broker's Comments

Rock Ferry was home to the Enterprise Small Craft Company, which built a number of notable boats in the 1920's and 1930's. Purchaser's are invited to buy into a piece of heritage, this boat was commandeered by the MOD for seven years and was a participant in the Dunkirk landings. As you can see from the pictures, she is a fine looking traditional vessel. A large gentleman’s motor yacht with all the maintenance up to date. She is set up for both entertaining and live aboard, having more than ample accommodation space.
