This looks like the one that was caught loaded with drugs and aboard which the customs officer lost his life.

she's been up for sale and on ebay more than once.the chap advertising her was advertising with fully cut steel sheeting to transform the superstructure into a motor yacht with a totally different profile, and wouldn't sell the boat seperately.his price was £30,000.00p..........

you guess right, he didn't get any takers on ebay., and yes you're right Kittiwake, that is the same sad boat.........

I think her history has put potential buyers off.

1996 Customs officer slipped and was crushed between her and the Sentinel when trying to board her. Apparantly she went on fire when a gas cylinder exploded, dont know if this caused the officer to slip

The engine room did'nt suffer too much from the fire,the Gardner's are still in the boat and are still locked up!,the boat was sold,and is going to be restored as a lifeboat by a chap in south yorkshire.
