Broker's Comments

This boat creates a lovely impression the moment you walk onboard. She is a real classic beauty and more importantly she appears to be in excellent condition.

In the early 1960's Searider designed the models ranging from 9 to 22 metres. This Searider 17m was the only one ever built. I expect that today she still looks exactly how she did when completed in 1967.

I took a good look at the hull around the engines and I was totally surprised at how clean it all looked. I could not see any area that may have concerned me.

This boats now requires a new owner who will look after her with the same passion as her current owner who has kept her so well during the last 34 years.

The vendor will include the remainder of the lease on the berth. Currently this has a couple of years remaining.
