A se­lec­tion of used beau­ties

2010 59FT OUR LADY RICH­MOND

Alexan­der Boat­builders have been build­ing steel­work for pres­ti­gious boat fit­ters and dis­cern­ing pri­vate own­ers for many years, with owner Jim Sparkes hav­ing more than 35 years of ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt.

The fit-out is by Roger Fincher in a spa­cious de­sign, mak­ing her equally suit­able for long term cruis­ing/liveaboard use. She is pow­ered by an Isuzu 42 diesel with a PRM 150 gear­box.

The ver­sa­tile sleep­ing ar­range­ment is for up to four, at ap­proach­ing 12ft the aft bed­room has suf­fi­cient room for a cross­bed of king size width, large wardrobe and am­ple cup­board stor­age, with two fur­ther berths avail­able as a sec­ond dou­ble or two sin­gles on the bench seat­ing.

If en­ter­tain­ing guests there is com­fort­able seat­ing for up to eight in the saloon and ad­ja­cent dinette. A Sto­vax solid fuel stove creates lovely dry warmth with the Eberspacher cen­tral heat­ing back­ing it up when re­quired. Our Lady Rich­mond’s tra­di­tional pro­file gives pro­tec­tion to the steerer, on cooler days what could be nicer than clos­ing the aft doors be­hind you and en­joy­ing the lux­u­ri­ous heat com­ing from the cabin. The Vic­tron 1.6kW in­verter/charger is more than ca­pa­ble of pow­er­ing Our Lady Rich­mond’s por­ta­ble twin-tub wash­ing ma­chine and when the boat is not in use, bat­ter­ies are kept topped up by the so­lar panel.

Tra­di­tional fit­tings in­clude a dec­o­rated cratch board and fit­ted acylic cover. The boat is on sale with abnb.co.uk on 01788 822 115
