This lovely 1958 Wooden Motor Launch will appeal to a special type of person who appreciates her wonderful lines and the true value of such a functional, yet beautiful time piece. Her name “Swn-Y-Mor” translates to Sound of the Sea and she is a beauty. This is a truly adorable vessel that has been the subject of much refurbishment over the years as you will be able to tell from the photographs. The potential owner of this vessel will truly appreciate quality, history and boat building at its best with this unique wooden vessel. This would also make a nice live aboard, a mooring is available subject to separate negotiation at Gravesend Marina.
