Think that comment on liferaft did him no good...(Smoke)
Alot of boat though if you got it the right side of 150k... well if you compare it to the Plastic Gin Palaces out there that would knock da sh** and every filling out of you in anything over a Force 5.... :D

Wonder would he throw in a fuel tank of diesel for that price....(Jester)

Well Wully, at that price I'd want a full tank of gas to get me down to Fleetwood!I can dream at least.
I did however email Levinton? marina to ask the price of the Three sisters, but The mail has not been responded too.
When I told my wife that I was doing so, she didn't hit me over the head with a frying pan, but just shrugged her shoulders, so I did try at least.!

She is the Ex Rosslare boat St Brendan.

Thats right Sandman, she was the one that was badly damaged and severely holed on the port side when the Stena Line ferry "Koningin Beatrix" reversed into her and submerged her bow. The lifeboat was kept afloat by her pumps.
Think during refit she was re-engined with Detroit 650hps, limited back to 500hp each
