Reluctant sale of our lovely 1926 Buertschip, Rotterdam Diena. We are looking for a new owner to treasure her as we have for the last 7 years.
There aren't many boats with such a stylish shape to the exterior combined with comfortable, modern living. Post fit out we have a survey from 2017 and valuation available. We have priced her to sell...…so please only genuine enquiries.
We are hoping to be able to do viewings in the last week of May.
When we bought her she was a shell having been re-bottomed by her previous owner, a professional welder. With the help of RW Davis we fitted her out under the watchful eye of Small Craft Consultancy and she was given an RCD rating C in December 2016. She effortlessly sailed across the channel in 2017 and enjoyed two years of cruising in France and Belgium. Now ready for new adventures....please contact for further information required.
