The Mitchell 31 Solanum needs no introduction in terms of hull design and seaworthiness. Solanum has been solidly built and nicely finished off with a sensible turn of speed. She is one of the few Mitchells 31s with a raised steering platform. This cannot be described as a flying bridge, but the raised platform together with all the steering and engine controls to hand give very good visibility for docking and quick easy access to the side decks when coming onto the berth single handed. Although this is rugged looking workboat on the outside, she has a wonderfully comfortable yacht style interior finish inside. Well worth a viewing. A 2020 survey is available.
If you would like to view this smashing motor yacht, then please call Nick on +44 8900 191 326 and he will arrange to collect you from any of the Island's ferry ports and whizz you out to see her.
