Broker Remarks

Owners Remarks:
We purchased the boat in 2016, and since then, we have updated her to what we think is a very high standard; items that we have upgraded include a full navigation suite upgrade, canvas covers, interior & exterior cushion coverings, Webasto heating system, bow thruster as well as a comprehensive 12V power bank, charging & inverter system.
We have maintained the boat with no expense spared with regular engine servicing; we also had the underwater profile stripped back to gelcoat in 2021, taking away years of old antifoul.
We have mainly used Paddington as a coastal cruiser along the Southwest coast, we have regular trips in the summer East or West of Plymouth, and we also make it a priority at least once a month to get out on the water, even if it is only to take her as far as the Eddystone lighthouse, or the River Yealm.
