Broker Remarks

This Trapper 250s is a fine example; she has been in the same ownership for the majority of her life. She was most recently donated to the Sea Cadets charity by the owner to sell on, and the proceeds from the sale of this Trapper will go towards the running costs of the charity and reinvested into much-needed equipment.
There is some minor work to get the boat back on the water, but she has just been antifouled, and the mast needs stepping.
In 2003 she went through a fairly major refit, and we have a big pile of invoices to back up her maintenance schedule.
This will make a good entry-level boat for a young enthusiast.
Some storage for a short period of time could be included for a buyer so that arrangements can be made to arrange transport to its new location or be prepared to be re-launched.
