Seakers of Weymouth are delighted to present for sale this ever popular, twin-engined Flybridge Cruiser.

Hermit of Hythe is currently based in Lymington where the owner uses it for his personal use and skippered charters, so although the boat benefits from being coded, it has never been bare-boated or chartered overnight.

Benefiting from twin Nanni 200HP engines on shaft together with a bow thruster, for close quarter manoeuvring, the boat has the performance to match her striking looks.

Accommodation comprises of 4 permanent berths whilst the saloon table can be converted into an additional berth, whilst there is a full galley and separate heads.

There is easy access to the boat via the Aft Deck, which makes an excellent fishing platform and plenty of space on the Flybridge together with a second Helm position.

There is the possibility of the sale of the highly regarded business (with a 5 star rating on trip advisor) along with the boat by negotiation, please contact us if you would like to discuss this:

Broker's View: "This is a classic and popular Flybridge cruiser, equally at home as a family boat for extended trips as for fishing trips. There is also the possibility to buy the successful business along with the boat."
