Broker's Comments

Wow! A rare opportunity to own Hull no.1 Silverette by Silvers of Rosneath. Distinguished past owners include Robbie Coltrane who cruised the magical Scottish Isles in her. She is of traditional carvel construction on steam bent oak timbers and copper fastened. Built in 1930 she played her part in the war as a submarine lookout boat on western shores and she is still In outstanding condition, she really must be seen to be appreciated. This classic has great all-round views from her beautifully varnished mahogany wheelhouse and all modern comforts inside. Her powerful Thornycroft engine makes her a wonderful coastal or river cruiser or even a live-aboard courtesy of her aft stateroom.
This beautiful piece of history is priced very keenly to sell as the current owner is moving abroad.
