A further companion-way leads to the BRIDGE providing a commanding view from the Helm Console - offset to Starboard. A seating area is to Port, together with ample storage areas for installed electronic equipment, etc. Throughout this craft there are open areas which can be used for either additional seating or lockering facilities.
EXTERNALLY the vessel has curved stair-ways to both sides of the prniciple structure - within the transom to the after deck - providing access to the fly-deck area. Additionally, an excellent 'walk-thru' passage-way offers access to the fore-deck area on each side of the main structure. An integral ladder provides access to a stern-platform.

Keeping an eye on changes as this project develops - this substantial vessel is worthy of scrutiny! Contact the Broker for an 'up-date' and further detail of this exciting project.
The following 'deck equipment' is installed/included:
- Hydraulic Fore-deck Windlass
- Appropriate sized Anchor & Chain
- Mooring Warps & Fenders
Usual deck equipment (unspecified)..........
With a back-ground of management of similar projects, the current ownership has seen the current 'de-commissioning' as an opportunity to accommodate a number of persons - with suitable qualifications - to undertake the 'fit-out' programme. The result is of a 're-commissioning' in the fore-seeable future. It is understood the previous activity of the vessel was to provide similar use in the provison of stowage areas for merchant goods, as well as small numbers of 'paid passengers'. In recent months - and change of ownership - it has been decided to undertake a 're-fit' programme. Such a programme is not only to provide improved accommodation, but also a wider range of activity. The latter interest is in 'passage-making' around the coast-line of Great Britian and Northern Ireland.
'The TRAFALGAR 40 Motor Cruiser (at 21mtrs) over-all length offers considerable accommodation space together with a back-ground of 'armed forces' specification. The 'Head-lined' details above provide some indicaiton of both the anticipation of a suitable vessel for 'passage-making' in suitable open seas areas as well as the understand of many to look for an opportunity to enjoy circum-navigate the British Isles as well as reach the Scandinavian coast-line. The vessel is currently being 'fitted-out' to meet the potential of providing comfort as well as a 'personal space' - unlike some of the larger, more populated 'holiday makers'. Contact with 'Simon Thomas Yacht Sales' - part of Lochin Marine International Ltd - is welcomed and is possible to provide direct link with the 'founder' of this unique opportunity.
