It has become a familiar sight at Inveraray pier,
but now the Vital Spark puffer has been put up for sale. Owner Archie MacArthur said on social media: ‘After 10 years of extensive and expensive works, I have decided to put the Vital Spark on the market now the hard work is all done.’ Adding that the ‘potential is endless’, Mr MacArthur continued: ‘You’re not just buying a ship, you are buying into Scottish history and the world’s last privately-owned, commercially working puffer, VIC 72 Vital Spark.’ Interested? The price is £95,000. The Vital Spark is pictured above during last week’s Storm Diana.
