Broker's Comments

Don't be fooled by the outside. Inside she is a tardis providing a spacious liveaboard with well fitted galley, saloon, forward cabin and shower room.

This former Oil Rig lifeboat has been fitted out to provide a very attractive open plan living space with separate forward cabin and shower room.

These ex-rig lifeboats certainly do paint up well and, how good it is to see one that is not distressed orange.
I like this no-nonsense layout in a neutral plain colour which is not white/magnolia. Particularly like the combination sink & hob. The lack of unnecessary ostentation gives the interior good clean aesthetic lines. Its the kind of place that will be very easy to just sit and be - without fuss, without distraction. Blessings bestowed upon those who resist 'Staging'...
This must be the calm before the deluge. I have seen many of the orange distressed variant, including those in the yard of origin (the UK yard anyhow). Remains to be seen how others fare with conversion. This has set a quality standard. Well Done.
