Bespoke built originally for a millionaire 1989, sold to a Sir in the late 90's whom I bought from. Drimble is comfortable home from home craft with more cupboards and draw cabin space than any other boat I have come across or seen! She is a Classic of age. All fixtures and fittings are pure brass attached to master craftmanship woodwork. Outside paint work could use a repaint to bring back to original condition. This boat/home is good for another 30years plus..... Too much to write down here - Come see for yourself! We are open 7 days a week for viewing
